Woman flees from indecent exposure

A young woman fled for home when a man exposed himself to her on Neyland Road.

The incident happened Feb. 27 at about 10 p.m. after a woman, 22, had been dropped off at a bus stop behind Rock City Plaza.

She was walking the final few blocks to her home when she noticed the driver of a small, black car that passed her appeared to be staring intently at her. She had also seen the driver at the bus stop and told police he seemed to be lingering nearby when she was dropped off.

When she reached Neyland Road, she saw the same black car parked on the side of the road and the driver standing next to it. He exposed his penis to her as he started to walk toward her.

The woman blew a whistle she kept in her purse and ran the rest of the way to her home.

Police were unable to find the suspect, who is believed to be an aboriginal man in his 20s or early 30s. He had a moustache and wore a black hooded jacket with the hood up.

Anyone with information about this incident or the suspect is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
