Oak Bay police seek flashing cyclist

Oak Bay police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a pair of young girls

Oak Bay police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a pair of young girls Saturday afternoon (March 3).

The girls were playing in the 1300-block of Transit Road at 3 p.m. when the man called out to them from a distance, asking a question about the apartment building at the end of the block. He was riding a bicycle, and was close enough for the girls to see that the front zipper of his pants was open and his genitals were exposed.

The girls did not answer the man and ran to their home.

The man is described as 20 to 25 years old, six-foot-one tall and skinny, with dark brown hair and a high-pitched voice. He was wearing a blue bike helmet and riding a newer-looking blue bicycle.

Police are asking for any help the public can offer in identifying him.

In a similar incident last summer a man was reported riding a bike near Lafayette Park with his bike shorts pulled down and his rear end exposed. Police are unsure if the same man is involved in both cases.
