A male was observed exposing his genitals while running with his dog on a local trail in North Vancouver in the late afternoon on July 13, 2019. Two women were walking on the Upper Shinglebolt Trail, west of Capilano Road in North Vancouver, when they observed the male pull up his shorts and expose his genitals as he ran by them.

The male is described as: Indigenous, approximately 30 years-old, 6 feet/183 centimeters, lean build, dark short hair and goatee beard. He was wearing red shorts, tan colored sleeveless shirt and running shoes.

"This indecent act is concerning to police as it occurred in a public place during the daytime. It is believed to be an isolated incident but police are urging trail users to report any encounters of this nature to police."
