The Comox Valley RCMP is investigating after receiving several complaints of a man who allegedly exposed himself while riding his bicycle.
On August 12, 2022 at around 11:30 a.m., a complaint was received from women reporting they were walking on a path in Idiens Park near the play structure off of Idiens Way when they were passed multiple times by a man on a bicycle who allegedly exposed himself and masturbated in front of them.

On August 12, 2022 just before 5:00 p.m., a second complaint was received reporting that two female youth were walking on a path parallel to Sheraton Road at Cummings Road, when they were also passed multiple times by a man who allegedly exposed himself and masturbated in front of them.

The man in the above noted events was described as a tall, slender, fair skinned Caucasian male in his 20’s, with brown wavy hair and red facial hair, riding a dark coloured bicycle.
On August 14, 2022 just after midnight., a third complaint was received reporting that a woman was being followed by a man who was exposing himself near the intersection of Anderton Road at Guthrie Road. During this incident, police were able to contain the area and with the assistance of a police dog, they were able to locate and arrest a suspect, who also matched the description of the suspect in the previous incidents.

Investigators believe that the three events may have been committed by the same person. Comox Valley RCMP is requesting anyone with video surveillance from residences situated along the pathways described above to contact the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit at 250-338-1321.
