Red Deer RCMP want the public’s help in tracking down a man accused of exposing himself to two women in separate incidents last month.

Police believe the same suspect is responsible for both incidents.

On Jan. 17, a man with his pants down and his genitals exposed approached a woman who was about to get into her car at the Parkland Mall parking lot. The woman confronted the man loudly and he ran away.

Two days later, a 53-year-old woman was walking in the area of 59th Street and 54th Avenue at about 4:30 p.m. when a man with his genitals exposed approached her. When the woman used her cellphone to call police, the suspect ran southbound along a nearby bike path towards downtown.

RCMP patrols arrived soon after but could not locate the man.

He is described as Caucasian, about five-foot-10 (1.78 metres) tall, weighing 160 to 180 pounds (73 to 82 kg) with a slim build. He has dark brown hair, brown eyes and was wearing a dark grey or brown toque and a grey pullover with black sleeves. He was wearing blue jeans and black shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
