Vancouver police seeking witness to exposing incident

Vancouver Police are asking for witnesses to come forward in an exposing incident that happened late afternoon Tuesday, May 10th.

Shortly after 5:30 p.m., an 11 year old girl and her five year old sister were playing in the 3900 block Heather Street when they saw a man walking north on the east sidewalk. As he got closer to the girls, they noticed that his penis was hanging out of his pants. The man did not say anything to the girls nor did he make any overt movements towards them.

The girls ran to a nearby house to call 9-1-1 and he was last seen running south in the east lane of the 3900 block Heather Street.

The man is described as white, lighter-skinned, between 40 and 55 years old. He was 5’9” to 6’ tall with a medium build and dark-coloured eyes, and he had an unshaven look with the light shadow of a moustache.

He may have had moles on his face and was described as having a slightly pointed nose. His hair was slightly longer than ear-length and was dark brown or black with graying streaks.

He was described as wearing a white t-shirt with a light grey graphic on the front, long white pants like those of a painter or labourer, and either sandals or runners.

Vancouver Police are asking anyone who may have been in the area at the time and seen the man described above to contact the Vancouver Police Department Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-2679 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
