Prince George RCMP have received four complaints with a common theme.
In three of the reports, an man in a pickup truck approached one or two females and exposed his penis after opening the driver side door. In the fourth file, the male did not expose himself, but approached the victim. The victims, who range in age from 10 to 18 years old, all fled the locations with no further incident.
The description of the man is similar in every investigation: a Caucasian male with short brown hair and a long brown goatee. In each case he was wearing blue jeans, but different coloured shirts. The four incidents occurred between noon and 6 p.m. along the 2500 block of Victoria Street, on Eighth Avenue near Winnipeg Street, the 2600 block of Pine Street and Johnson Street near 12th Avenue.
The vehicle has been described as a dark coloured pickup truck, possibly black, blue or burgundy, and may be an extended cab or four-door.
“We realize that these descriptions are vague, but the safety of the public is of overriding importance in this investigation, therefore we felt it necessary to notify the public, no matter how vague the description,” media liaison officer Cpl. Craig Douglass said in a release.
The Prince George RCMP would like to remind the public, in particular parents and young females, to take extra precautions when walking on residential streets. Whenever possible, never walk alone, take well-travelled routes with lots of traffic, and be aware of your surroundings, including where you can run for help.
