Exposed to potential charges

An unidentified man from the North Thompson Valley faces potential charges after allegedly exposing himself to a woman in Kelowna

KELOWNA – An unidentified man from the North Thompson Valley faces potential charges after allegedly exposing himself to a woman early Wednesday morning in Kelowna.

On August 31, at 1:29 a.m., Kelowna RCMP responded to an indecent act report near the city’s downtown. Police have determined that the woman caller had pulled her vehicle to the side of the road to use her cellular phone when a male exposed himself to the woman as he walked past her car.

Police were provided with a detailed description of the suspect, who had fled north. An officer quickly located an intoxicated man matching the suspect’s description attempting to hide from police.

The suspect, a 52-year-old man from the North Thompson area, was arrested, held in custody overnight and later released. He faces potential charges of indecent act and he is expected to appear in court on Nov. 17.

Police were advised that there might have been additional witnesses in the area at the time of the incident. Investigators ask anyone with any additional information to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
