Abbotsford Police warn of indecent acts from two men

Abbotsford Police are warning the public about two men who exposed themselves to four young girls and a senior woman.

The first two reports took place at Rotary Stadium in the 32400 block of Haida Drive.

One was on Saturday, March 5 at 4 p.m., when a man exposed himself to two nine-year-old girls who did not have any adults with them.

The other was on Sunday, April 24 at 5:30 p.m., and the two victims, ages nine and 11, were also on their own.

In both instances, the suspect was described as Indo-Canadian, in his late 20s, 5' 8" to 5' 10", and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds.

Const. Ian MacDonald said police have identified a suspect and have given him a warning.

"We don't have enough evidence at this point to charge ... Identification has been a bit of an issue," he said.

The third incident was on Thursday, May 5 at about 5:45 p.m., when a 75-year-old woman was walking in the 2400 block of Countess Street.

A Caucasian man in a vehicle described as a newer black sedan asked her for the time. When the woman turned to respond, she noticed the man was fondling himself and was grinning at her.

The victim told him she was going to call police, and he drove away.

That man is described as 30 to 40 years old, about 200 pounds, with short brown receding hair and pale skin.

MacDonald said these incidents are concerning because of the potential for them to escalate to something more serious.

"These are bad guys that we would very much like to bring in."

He cautioned parents to supervise their children. Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Poice at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
