West Shore police want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed an alleged indecent act at Thetis Lake earlier this month.

According to West Shore RCMP, they received a report of a male suspect “exposing his genitals while walking along the main trail” at Thetis Lake Regional Park, at around 2 p.m. on April 18.

The witness, according to West Shore RCMP, informed them that the man suspect was near the first bridge inside the park when the incident occurred and that there was a family with young children nearby who may have witnessed the act.

West Shore RCMP say the information provided to them by the witness resulted in the arrest of a 22-year-old Caucasian male, who is about 5-foot-8 tall. He was wearing a blue plaid jacket, black hoodie, black pants and was walking a dog around the time of the incident.

Police responded immediately. The suspect was identified as a 22 year old male who has since been arrested. The witness was able to provide police with a detailed description of the suspect which help us locate and arrest the suspect,” said Const. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media relations officer, in a press release.

However, police say they have not been able to identify the family that were apparently in the area at the time of the incident.

They’re asking anyone who witnessed this crime to call the West Shore RCMP non-emergency line by calling 250-474-2264.
