Transit Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect who allegedly exposed himself to a teen girl and her friends back on February 8.
Around 12:30 in the afternoon, the 15-year-old and her friends were traveling on the SkyTrain from Surrey to downtown Vancouver.
A man boarded the train at Main Street and stood in front of the teens, and allegedly unzipped his pants, exposed himself, and committed an indecent act.
Both the teens and the suspect got off the train at Granville Station.
Anne Drennan explained why the Transit Police are seeking help now.
“So we tried to identify the suspect with every means we have available, but unfortunately we came up with negative results here, so we’ve now got to the point where we’re asking the public’s help.”
The suspect is described as a dark-skinned male, aged 30 to 40 years old, 6’2″, broad shouldered, heavy build, dark buzz cut hair, short dark beard, wearing a dark blue sweater, and possibly a blue vest over a long sleeved black shirt, dark jeans, and black shoes.
“You know, middle of the day, girls going shopping downtown for the birthday of one of the girls, and they find themselves confronted with this situation which was of course, was extremely troubling for them.”
Drennan said there were other witnesses, but no one was able to stop the suspect.
“Before anybody could say or do anything, the teens and the suspect got off the train at Granville Station, so they were only on the train for a relatively brief period of time and reported it very quickly afterwards.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Transit Police.
