Police are on the lookout for a man who exposed himself to a group of young girls at Langford Lake on Thursday, July 4.
Three girls, aged 7, 8 and 9, were walking along Ed Nixon Trail when an unknown male approached the girls and began to masturbate. The man tried to talk to the girls but they left and went home.
RCMP say at no time did the man attempt to touch the girls.
The man is described as Caucasian, six-feet tall, 40 to 50 years old and about 200 pounds. At the time he was wearing black shorts, or a black skirt.
The girls didn't tell their parents about the incident until a few days later, at which time the parents called the RCMP.
"The children in this situation did the right thing and left as a group … to a safe and known location," said West Shore RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz.
Police are asking anyone with any information to contact the detachment at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
