Indecent exposure suspect sought

Man in Anderson Park was riding a bike with "hummer" on the crossbar

Two weeks after two women hiking in Anderson Hill Park encountered a man exposing his genitals, Oak Bay police are seeking the public’s help to identify the suspect.

The incident happened Aug. 1 at about 3:30 p.m. The man was sitting on a bench in the park with his genitals exposed, making no effort to cover himself in the women’s presence, said Const. Lauren Grekul.

The man later left the area and rode in the direction of Newport Avenue on a black bike with the word “hummer” written on the crossbar in yellow letters.

The man is described as about 40 years old, with olive skin and a full head of short, wavy brown hair. He is about 5’10” and weighs 160-170 pounds. At the time, he wore a beige or pale yellow T-shirt and dark nylon running shorts, and spoke with a European accent.

Anyone with information is asked to call Oak Bay Police Department at 250-592-2424.
