“The RCMP at the University of British Columbia (UBC) detachment are warning the public, particularly women, to be careful when jogging or biking on or around the trails of Pacific Spirit Park near West 16th Avenue.
On numerous occasions, women on the trails have complained of a male approaching them by exposing his genital area and masturbating as they went by. The male is described as Caucasian with a slim build and very tanned. He is believed to be approximately 5’7” to 5’9” and between the ages of 30 to 40 years old.
“It is important for women to be vigilant to their surroundings when out in Spirit Park and to never go alone, especially at night. It’s also important to carry a cell phone,” said Sergeant Peter Thiessen of the Lower Mainland District RCMP Regional Police Service.
“We want to warn the public but also we encourage anyone with any information that may assist us in locating the suspect to call UBC detachment,” said Sgt.Thiessen.
UBC RCMP continues to investigate and encourages the public to call them to report any suspicious activity.
