Man exposes self to child

RCMP are warning residents of the Fraser Valley to be on the lookout for a man who exposed himself to a child.

Police said the indecent occurred in Yarrow on Dec. 18, about 2:15 p.m., when a male allegedly exposed himself to a 10-year-old girl who was walking on Community Street.

“Fortunately, the young girl did the right thing, and immediately ran home,” said Cpl. Mike Rail.

RCMP worked with the Chilliwack School District, and a school fan-out advisory was issued Dec. 22 to warn parents of the incident.

“Police are advising parents to review street-proofing safety tips with their children, such as avoiding long conversations with strangers and walking to places with a buddy,” said Rail.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 60-69 years old, five feet nine inches tall, 181 pounds, with grey hair in a ponytail. He was wearing a navy blue sweat shirt and scrubs-style pants.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
