Delta Police are asking for witnesses and or video following an indecent act near Burnsview Secondary in North Delta.
Police say the indecent act occurred around 9 a.m. Friday morning after officers were notified that a man appeared to be masturbating on a path north of the school, near the end of 77th Ave.
The youth who witnessed the incident promptly reported the matter to authorities. Police responded quickly, but were not able to locate the suspect.
The suspect is described as: a South Asian male, aged 20 to 30 years old, six feet tall, with broad shoulders. He was wearing a sky blue toque with a gray zip-up hoodie, black windbreaker and blue jeans.
“Anyone who may have been walking or cycling in the area, between about 8:45 to 9:15 a.m., who may have seen the suspect is asked to contact police on the non-emergency line at 604-946-4411,” said DPD spokesperson Cris Leykauf. “Additionally, those in the area with dash cam or home security cameras, who haven’t yet spoken to police, are asked to check footage for anyone matching this description.”
Police note the investigation is in its early stages, and it is too soon to determine if this incident is linked to other indecent acts that have occurred in North Delta in recent years.
The public is requested that if they should witness such an incident to please call 9-1-1 right away, to allow police to quickly respond.
