Male Arrested For Indecent Exposure

66 Year Old Arrested For Incident

In Maffeo Sutton Park

A male arrested Saturday afternoon for exposing himself has been linked to a previous incident reported on Sept 7th at Maffeo Sutton Park

Saturday around 2:15 pm police were called to the 600 block of Kennedy St for a report of a male exposing himself. Police responded and from the description and location provided by witnesses, the male was quickly located and arrested without incident . Further investigation determined that the 66 year old male was also the same individual from an incident reported on Sept 7 at the water front.

In the Sept 7th incident, two females out for an evening stroll around 10:30 pm witnessed a male expose himself as they passed.” Our officers are confident the male who is well known to our office, is the same male involved in both incidents” said Constable Gary O’Brien media spokesperson for the Nanaimo RCMP. We also want to reassure the public these incidents are treated as a priority call by our members and that we have dedicated several police officers full time to locating and arresting the persons responsible for these disturbing incidents. Female police officers are also being used as decoys in our local parks at various times and places in hopes of drawing out the offenders” said O’Brien.

The male was released from custody alter Saturday afternoon and is scheduled to make his first court appearance on October 27.
