North Vancouver RCMP are warning the public about a male who exposed his genitals to a young female.

On May 15, 2019, at 3:40PM, a lone man driving a silver SUV approached a 13-year-old female in the 200 block of 27th St. West, in North Vancouver. The man called her over on the pretense of asking for directions. When she approached, he made a lewd comment and exposed his genitals. The young female ran away and was not physically harmed.

A police sketch artist has completed a composite drawing of the suspect in the hope that someone will recognize him and contact police. We want parents and children to take extra precautions until we can track this man down, said Sgt. Peter DeVries, Media Spokesperson for the North Vancouver RCMP. It’s a reminder for parents to talk with their kids about how to increase their safety in public.

This incident bears a resemblance to similar reports on the North Shore in the past year. While police are continuing to investigate the possibility that these incidents are linked, they are currently treating them as separate.

Anyone with information about this crime, or who recognizes the suspect, is asked to call Cst. Aaron Land at 604-969-7510

Here are several tips to get the conversation about safety started with your kids:
