RCMP are looking for the mother of a child after a man exposed himself in front of the minor in Port Hardy last month.
In a media release Thursday, Port Hardy RCMP said a 41-year-old man, of no fixed addressed, has been charged with several indecent acts within the community.
The first incident occurred on June 2nd, after a business in the 8700-block of Granville Street kicked a man out of the place due to his “gross level of intoxication.”
Once outside of the building, the man exposed himself to the public. With a description in hand, RCMP officers were able to locate the suspect and take him into custody.
He was later released after sobering up, police said.
Nearly three weeks later, police said they were notified again on June 22nd and June 23rd of two other separate indecent acts incidents, which involved the same man.
RCMP said they were able to obtain enough of a detailed description and statements from witnesses to press three indecent act charges against 41-year-old Richard Overton.
“We would like to thank the public who provided key evidence in identifying the suspect,” said Corporal Martin Giguere of the Port Hardy RCMP.
“Unfortunately, a child was exposed to this indecent act on June 2nd and we would like to speak with the mother of that child.”
Anyone with information on any of the incidents is asked to contact the Port Hardy RCMP at 250-949-6335.
