VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Women are being warned to be vigilant while jogging or biking the trails of Pacific Spirit Park.  UBC RCMP say a man has been exposing himself and masturbating to passersby in the area.

So far, the man has not approached anyone but Sergeant Peter Thiessen says several women have seen the suspect.  “He’s Caucasian with a slim build and very tanned.  He is believed to be approximately 5’7″ to 5’9″ tall and between the ages of 30 to 40 years-old.

Thiessen suggests women carry a cell phone with them and never go out alone at night.  He also hopes the warning can spread to young women at the school via social media.

“I think social media can be utilized here in a very positive matter.  If women wanted to share this information through social media, on Twitter and Facebook that there is an individual who has been in the park conducting this kind of activity. Share that description and stay connected.”

Anyone with more information is asked to call UBC RCMP at 604.224.1322.
