Oak Bay police seek man who exposed himself at UVic

Extensive patrols by UVic security, Oak Bay police and Saanich police did not locate a suspect

Despite an extensive search, Oak Bay police continue to seek a man who exposed himself to a student at the University of Victoria early this morning.

Shortly before 2 a.m. on April 19, a lone male student was studying in a lab in the UVic Engineering Building when another male unkown to him, entered the lab and at one point exposed his genitals. The suspect attempted to engage him in a conversation, but left when the studying student told him to leave.

Extensive patrols by UVic security, Oak Bay police and Saanich police did not locate a suspect. He is described as possibly Latino in appearance with long tightly curled hair standing six-foot-four-inches tall and weighing about 165 pounds. At the time he was wearing a black three-quarter length rain coat, black sweat pants and running shoes.

Oak Bay police say there have been no similar incidents reported and ask anyone with information to call the Oak Bay Police Department at 250-592-2424 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at victoriacrimestoppers.ca.
