Transit police are looking for a man who allegedly exposed himself to a woman while on the SkyTrain.

The woman noticed the man “looming uncomfortably close to her” around 10 a.m. on April 29, police said Monday.

“When she looked toward the man, she noticed that he had his erect penis and testicles exposed over the waistline of his sweatpants, only a foot away from her face,” a news release said.

She was able to take a photo, which she later provided to officers.

The suspect got off the train at Main Street Station. Video surveillance showed he’d gotten on at Commercial and Broadway and road trains for nearly an hour between Main Street and Edmonds stations, pointing to his “predatory nature.”

He finally left the public transit system at Joyce-Collingwood station.
