Investigators are hoping the public can help identify a suspect believed to have exposed himself to three people on two different occasions in Coquitlam.
RCMP have released a pair of sketches today (Aug. 26) based on descriptions provided by the victims, all of which observed a man staring at them for an "uncomfortable" period of time.
Both instances took place on Eagleridge Drive near the Coquitlam Crunch.
The first took place on May 24 when a woman reported to Mounties a man walked past her near the top of the Crunch then began staring at her for a long time.
She explained he then doubled back and walked toward her, stopped and exposed himself before she drove away and called police.
"Since the initial report, two more victims have come forward and provided information to police regarding a similar incident in the same area on August 21, 2021," explained Coquitlam RCMP Const. Deanna Law in a release.
"Our investigators are confident that someone will recognize the suspect or be able to provide information to further advance the investigation."
She added police patrols have increased in the Eagleridge Drive area since the first indecent act was called in.
The male suspect is described as:
- South Asian or Middle Eastern
- Approx. 5"10" tall
- Medium build
- Medium skin tone
- Short black hair
- Short black facial stubble
- Black baseball cap
- Orange raincoat
- White shirt underneath
- Blue shorts
