Saanich Police arrested a youth on the University of Victoria campus on suspicion of performing an indecent act, but they stopped short of linking him to a number of other incidents in the area.
Posters are up around campus warning students after an incident Sunday evening. A young woman was walking on a well travelled trail at 6 p.m. when she saw a young man masturbating.
Campus security found him and held him until police arrived and took him into custody. At this point, he has not been linked to a number of other incidents which involve a male either exposing himself, masturbating or committing sex assaults while riding a bike in the Gordon Head area over the past number of weeks.
“There are a number of incidents that have occurred between June and July and again in September of this year we’ll be taking a look at all those incidents,” said Saanich Police Sgt. Jereme Leslie.
The youth was slated to appear in court Monday on charges of performing an indecent act.
