Victoria police are warning the public to be on the lookout for a man who exposed himself and followed two women on the Galloping Goose Regional Trail on Wednesday.

The incident occurred just before 6 p.m. near the Cecelia Road bridge.

According to VicPD, a woman was walking southbound on the trail when she spotted a man sitting on a bench with his hand in his pants.

As she passed the man, he exposed himself, stood and began to follow her.

Moments later, another woman on a bicycle rode up and told the woman the man had done the same thing to her. Together, they left the area with the man following them.

They went into a nearby business and called police. Officers canvassed the area for the man but were unable to locate him.

The suspect has been described as white with long brown hair in a ponytail. He is six-feet tall with a slim build and believed to be in his 40s. At the time of the incident, he was barefoot and wearing a black T-shirt and grey cargo shorts.

VicPD are looking to identify this man and would like to speak with the woman on the bike, who left before officers arrived.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Victoria police non-emergency line at 250-995-7654. To report what you know anonymously, call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
