Vancouver Island man arrested after multiple reports of exposing himself while riding a bike


Comox Valley RCMP are investigating numerous complaints of indecent acts by a man who allegedly exposed himself while riding his bicycle. 

At around 11:30 a.m., on August 12th, several women walking on a path in Idiens Park reported being passed by a man on a bicycle who allegedly exposed himself and masturbated in front of them.

Just before 5 p.m. on August 12th, a second complaint was received. According to the two female youths, they were also passed multiple times by a man exposing himself on a path parallel to Sheraton Road at Cummings Road.

The man in the first reports was described as a fair skinned Caucasian male in his 20s. He was described as tall, slender with brown wavy hair and red facial hair, riding a dark coloured bicycle.

Just after midnight on August 14th, a third complaint was received. According to reports, a woman was being followed by a man who was exposing himself near the intersection of Anderton Road at Guthrie Road. 

Police were able to contain the area and, with the assistance of a police dog, they were able to locate and arrest the subject who matched the previous description of the suspect. 

Investigators believe the three events may have been committed by the same person. 

Anyone with video surveillance from residences situated along the pathways described in the report is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit at (250) 338-1321.
