Burnaby RCMP looking to identify suspect after indecent act near Lougheed Highway and Gaglardi Way

Darpan News Desk Burnaby RCMP, 13 May, 2022 05:06 PM
  • Burnaby RCMP looking to identify suspect after indecent act near Lougheed Highway and Gaglardi Way

The Burnaby RCMP is seeking additional witnesses and information as police look to identify the suspect in an indecent act.

On Thursday, May 12 Burnaby RCMP received a report that a driver was seen masturbating inside a vehicle while at a red light beside a westbound 136 bus on Lougheed Highway near Gaglardi Way around 3:55 p.m.

A teenage victim on the bus took video of the suspect, which has been provided to police.

The Burnaby RCMP is sharing the suspect’s image and description in hopes it may assist in identifying him.

The suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • About 50-years-old
  • Medium to heavy build
  • Wearing a black jacket with white stripes
  • The suspect did not appear to be wearing pants, as he was exposed from his waist to his knees
  • The suspect vehicle appears to be grey

Investigators are working to secure additional evidence, including other video from the area, as the video did not capture a view of the suspect’s vehicle or licence plate.

Officers are also interested in speaking with other passengers who were on board the westbound 136 Brentwood Station bus at the time who may have information.

“The Burnaby RCMP is looking to speak with anyone else, including drivers or other bus passengers, who may have also witnessed this indecent act or seen the suspect or his vehicle. This is concerning behaviour. Police want the public to be aware of this incident and to report any similar activity,” said Cpl. Alexa Hodgins with Burnaby RCMP.

While the Burnaby RCMP has not received any recent reports of similar behaviour, police are checking for similar incidents in other jurisdictions across the Lower Mainland as the suspect was in a vehicle.

Anyone with information on this incident or the suspect is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. Please quote file #22-15593
