A 52-year-old man has been arrested after he was caught exposing himself on board a bus.
According to a West Shore RCMP media release, officers arrested Patrick Gerald Cluney, 52, after he was allegedly seen masturbating in the upper deck area of a BC Transit bus in View Royal on July 9.
Numerous people onboard observed the indecent act and reported it to the driver who managed to call 911, but Cluney exited the bus near the 6 Mile Pub before officers arrived.
“Fortunately, several witnesses were able to keep an eye [on] the suspect and provided a detailed description to investigators,” Cpl. Chris Dovell of the West Shore RCMP said in the release.
Cluney was eventually located by West Shore RCMP officers and arrested without incident.
The 52-year-old was charged with committing an Indecent Act in a Public Place and has already appeared in Colwood Provincial Court.
