Suspect reportedly touched groin in front of children at Chilliwack Elementary School, BC – BC
Chilliwack RCMP warns the public that two disturbing indecent acts have been reported in the community.
The first incident occurred around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, when two children playing at Cultus Lake Elementary reported that a man approached them asking for directions.
Police said the man then began to touch his crotch through his pants and the children ran for help.
Chilliwack RCMP said officers searched the area but could not locate a suspect.
While police were investigating the incident, officers learned of a second alleged indecent act from the night before.
“A witness said that a man matching the same description had exposed himself and committed an indecent act at approximately 11 p.m. in the First Avenue area near Hemlock Street in the Cultus Lake area,” said Sgt. Krista Vrolk.
The police described the suspect as a man between 20 and 25 years old, 1.80 to 1.80 meters tall with a thin build and dark hair to the shoulders.
“This behavior is troubling and the fact that this person was involved with children in one of the incidents is particularly concerning,” Vrolyk said.
“The RCMP will maintain a reinforced presence in Cultus Lake this long Labor Day weekend and will conduct additional patrols in the area.”
Anyone with possible information is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611.
