Nanaimo police looking for a man suspected of indecent exposure

NANAIMO – Man exposes himself to 11-year-old girl on Selby Street.

Police in Nanaimo are asking for the public’s help to identify a man who exposed himself to an 11-year-old girl outside the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music.

The incident happened Friday at about 4:45 p.m. The girl was waiting for her mother in the front foyer of the conservatory, at 375 Selby St., when she saw a man outside the front door of the building who exposed himself and started to masturbate.

The suspect was gone when the girl’s mother arrived. The mother reported the incident to police after her daughter told her what happened.

Officers patrolled the area, but did not find the suspect.

The girl gave a description to a police forensic artist who created a composite sketch of what the suspect might look like. He is either Caucasian or First Nation, in his 30s, 5-foot-11 with a dark tan and short brown hair. No clothing description was obtained.

Anyone with information about this incident 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.
