On October 25, the complainant allegedly observed the man with his genitals exposed, and recorded it. He then reported the incident to officials at the school, who then contacted police.
The Youth Section of the Richmond RCMP took proactive measures to patrol the school on October 28, then located and arrested the man.
Inspector Michael Cohee, who is the officer in-charge of Operations Support, calls the incident “very concerning.”
“We encourage anyone, “if you see something, say something.” Call police as soon as possible so that we can attend and investigate.”
RCMP are saying that this is an isolated incident, but an investigation remains active and ongoing.
