File # 2022-19747
The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual shown in the attached photo. At approximately 10 AM on Friday June 10, 2022, this person allegedly exposed himself to a 17-year-old female as she walked westbound along Fifth St towards Wakeisah Ave. The suspect was initially seen standing in an alleyway, located between Hillcrest Ave and Lambert Ave.
The youth told police that when she walked past his location and made brief eye contact with him, he exposed his genitals to her, and then began walking towards her while committing an indecent act. The youth yelled and told him she was calling the police. The suspect then turned and starting running down the alley way in a southbound direction toward Hardwood Road. The youth managed to snap a picture of him before she lost site of him.
Police attended and conducted extensive patrols for the suspect but were unable to locate him.
The youth did exactly what is expected when confronted with these situations. She also provided an excellent description which should greatly assist in identifying this person, said Constable Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.
The suspect is described as follows:
- Caucasian, 5 ft. 10 medium build and in his 50’s
- Grey hair, longer face, sunken
- Wearing a welder’s style hat (skull cap)
- Greyish/purple partial zip up shirt, brown cargo pants
If anyone can identify this individual, please contact the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345, and quote file # 2022-19747.
