Vancouver Police say a man has been arrested following allegations that he exposed himself to two girls and forced one of them into a car on Vancouver’s Westside early this morning.
The first incident happened around 8 a.m.
A 13 year-old girl was walking in the area of Mackenzie Street and West 45th Avenue when a man drove up to her, asked her for directions, and requested that she get in the car.
Police allege he then opened the door, grabbed the girl and pulled her inside.
A short time later, he stopped the car and allegedly exposed himself.
The girl was able to open the door and run away.
The second incident happened around 8:30 a.m.
A 16-year-old girl was walking down Dunbar Street near West 37th Avenue when a man drove up to her, asked for directions and exposed himself.
The girl ran away and the car drove off.
Neither of the girls were physically injured, but police say both are both understandably traumatized by the events.
The Vancouver Police Department says a 20 year-old Vancouver man has been arrested.
Police are recommending charges of forcible confinement, two counts of indecent exposure and one count of fraud under $5,000.
