Older man on bike exposes himself to young girls in Chilliwack

RCMP say a man in his 40s, with grey hair and beard, exposed himself in front of children playing at McCammon Elementary school on Saturday.

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for a man who exposed himself to two 10-year-old girls playing at McCammon Elementary school on Saturday afternoon.

Police said the man exposed himself and began to touch himself in front of the children before pedaling away on a black bicycle.

“This is obviously a big concern for us,” Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.

“It was the middle of the day, on a bright sunny day, and the suspect was not deterred by the thought of an adult seeing his actions,” she said.

And if the police investigation shows a link to an earlier incident in April, she said, it would “increase the level of priority” given to the Saturday incident.

In the April incident, an older man with a grey moustache and riding a blue or black bicycle exposed himself to two girls walking along the Hope Slough.

In the Saturday incident, the suspect is described as a white man in his 40s with grey hair and a short grey beard. He was wearing a blue T-shirt with black pants at the time of the 1:30 p.m. incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
