Area where a people reported seeing a man expose himself

Cops hunting for flasher in Clayton

Three incidents in two weeks near Surrey's Clayton Secondary School spark police alert.

A man who exposed himself to students in the Clayton area of Surrey earlier this month is now the subject of a police search.

It’s also possible the man later exposed himself to a woman in the same area weeks later.

On March 2, at about 1 p.m., police responded to a call of a man committing an indecent act behind Clayton Heights Secondary School.

He’s described as a Caucasian male in his 20s, with a medium build, tattoos on his arms, wearing a grey hoodie and dark jeans. He was riding a BMX bike.

Then on March 5, at about 8:30 a.m., Surrey Mounties responded to a complaint of a man flashing his privates to two students in a laneway north of 70 Avenue between 190 and 188A Streets.

He is described as a Caucasian male, 30 to 40 years old, about 5’10”, with greying hair and wearing dark clothes.

Then on March 16, at about 12:30 p.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a man committing an indecent act on a trail near 70 Avenue and 188 Street as a woman walked her dog in the area.

He didn’t say anything, or approach her, but she felt it was obvious he wanted her to see him.

He left the area on his bike riding east on 68 Avenue.

That suspect is described as an Hispanic male, approximately 20 years old, with a slim build and short dark hair, wearing a brown hoodie and shorts. He was also riding a BMX-style bike with orange-coloured rims.

“While we have not been able to conclusively link these investigations at this early stage, there are enough similarities that caused our analysts and investigators to take notice,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Carr. “Our Youth Unit has spoken with the school and notices have gone out to parents to advise them of these incidents and provide information to students on what to do if they encounter such an individual. This serves has a good reminder for all residents to be aware of their surroundings and to report any and all suspicious activity immediately to police.”

Anyone with any information about these incidents is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or if you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca
