Abbotsford Police are searching for a man who is believed to have committed an indecent act.

Const. Ian MacDonald said that on June 15 at 10:20 a.m., a witness observed a man standing near a community mailbox in the area of McKinley Drive and Waterton Crescent. The man had his shorts down at his ankles and appeared to be holding and exposing himself.

The witness feared that the man was looking in the direction of a neighbouring elementary school. She immediately went home and called police.

Patrol officers attended the area and spoke with residents and school administrators. The suspect was not located and no other neighbours who were canvassed had witnessed the incident or had seen the man.

Parents, however, were notified about the occurrence. In the days that followed, the witness observed the suspect again, although not engaged in an indecent act or exposing himself.

For the second time, officers looked for the man and an advisory was issued to parents.

Police have issued a composite sketch of the suspect, who is described as a dark-toned Caucasian man in his 20s with short brown hair with a small patch of beard running from lip to chin. He is about 6’1” tall, medium build with blemishes or pock marks on his cheeks and a scrape on his forehead. He also has a tattoo on one of his wrists.

The suspect was wearing dark shorts and a brown T-shirt with a red logo on the first sighting and a brown hoodie and grey jogging pants during the second sighting.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
