Indecent exposure at Boleskine bus stop

Saanich Police looking for man who exposed himself to teenaged girl

  • Dec. 3, 2015 10:00 a.m.

An adult male uttered vulgar words and exposed himself to a teenage girl who was waiting in a B.C. Transit bus stop in the 400 block of Boleskine Road at 8 a.m. on Thursday.

The male is described as Caucasian, 35 to 45 years old, approximately five-foot-eight and clean shaven. He was wearing a dark blue zip-up hooded sweatshirt, black undershirt, black jogging pants, and had no accent and clear speech.

Shortly after he entered the bus stop the suspect began asking questions of a vulgar and sexual nature to the girl, who is a student.

“When the female student did not respond, the male pulled down his pants, exposed his penis and began to masturbate,” Sgt. Steve Eassie said, adding the male was about six feet away from the teen. “This was shocking for the female victim who did not expect this kind of interaction.”

The female left the bus shelter to seek help and the male departed the area on foot towards Whittier Avenue.

The incident was not reported to police for almost an hour, after the female student arrived at her school.

“In the event of a similar circumstance, please contact police immediately,” Eassie said.

Females using public forms of transit are being asked to be vigilant and, if possible, travel in groups of two or more and carry a cellphone.

Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to contact the Saanich Police at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
