In a separate incident, two men made reports on May 27 after they saw a man allegedly expose himself near the Canada Line Olympic Village station. Transit police investigated but were unable to locate the suspect, until they received reports of a man “waving scissors around while yelling at passersby and exposing himself” in the 3900 block of Point Grey Road. A 21-year-old Vancouver man was arrested and is scheduled to appear on July 12 on two counts of an indecent act on July 12 in Vancouver provincial court.
