VANCOUVER - Police are trying to track down a suspect who allegedly flashed a woman while she was cycling through West Vancouver last month.
Authorities said the victim was biking along Stevens Drive on the evening of Sept. 20 when someone in a black SUV pulled over near her.
"A male exited the vehicle and exposed his genitals to the cyclist as she passed," the West Vancouver Police Department said in a news release.
Officers were called to the scene and conducted "extensive patrols" in the area, but were unable to find the flasher.
On Wednesday, weeks after the incident, police released a composite sketch of a suspect in the hopes that someone will recognize him and come forward.
The suspect is described as a 5'8" tall South Asian man who is about 30 years old and has a medium build, black hair and trimmed beard. He was wearing a dark coloured T-shirt and black pants at the time of the incident.
Police asked anyone with information on the man's identity to call the department at 604-925-7300 and reference file number 19-11616. People who want to remain anonymous can instead call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
