Surrey RCMP investigating indecent acts in Cloverdale

SURREY RCMP are seeking information following reports of a man exposing and touching himself at three locations in proximity to a pathway adjacent to townhouse complexes in the Cloverdale area.

On February 1, Surrey RCMP received a report that a man was engaged in an indecent act in the pathway behind a townhouse complex located in the 6400-block of 168 Street. The man jumped a fence entering the backyard of one of the units, and then used a flashlight to capture the attention of the residents before shining the light on his exposed genitalia.

The man then fled the area using the footpath that runs behind residences parallel to 64 Avenue between 168 Street and 172 Street.

The suspect is described as a white male, 25-30 years old, clean-shaven, tall with a slim build. He was wearing a two-tone jacket, jeans and runners with some reflective material.

The Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit has been engaged and are assisting frontline officers with the ongoing investigation.

Police identified two other similar incidents in the same area that occurred in December 2022. In speaking with local residents, it is possible that there are additional unreported incidents.

“A member of the Surrey RCMP South Community Response Unit has met with Block Watch captains in the area to discuss the issue, share safety tips and encourage reporting of all incidents,” said Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Cpl. Vanessa Munn. “We are asking for anyone with information that could assist with identifying the suspect to contact police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
