Transit police are asking for help to identify a man who allegedly exposed his genitals to a woman and then masturbated on the SkyTrain.
According to transit police, a woman riding the SkyTrain around 10:30 pm on August 3 noticed a man sitting directly across from her, despite a nearly empty train.

After reviewing the servailance video, police discovered that the suspect had initially boarded the SkyTrain at the Coquitlam Central Station around 8:50 pm.
Before and after the alleged incident, police said he rode trains for “an extensive period of time” along the Millennium Line and the Expo Line west of Commercial-Broadway.
He got on and off trains and approached multiple women, revealing a “predatory nature to his actions,” police said.
