In a release on Monday, police said the incident took place at approximately 10 am on Monday, April 29.
“The female, who was sitting onboard the SkyTrain, noticed a man looming uncomfortably close to her,” police said. “When she looked toward the man, she noticed that he had his erect penis and testicles exposed over the waistline of his sweatpants, only a foot away from her face.”
Police said the woman was “surreptitiously able to take a photo of the suspect’s genitals,” which she later provided to the Transit Police.
The suspect left the SkyTrain at the Main Street-Science World Station.
“A video review revealed he had originally boarded the SkyTrain at Commercial and Broadway Station,” police said. “He rode trains for nearly an hour between Main Street and Edmonds SkyTrain stations, which speaks to the predatory nature of his actions.”
The man “finally” left the transit system at Joyce SkyTrain Station.
Police said the suspect is described as “a darker skinned male,” 25-30 years old, 5’9” tall, and weighing approximately 160lbs. He has brown hair, a patchy goatee, and brown eyes.
At the time of the incident, he was seen wearing glasses, black hoodie, black sweat pants with white drawstring, white headphones, and carrying a black and grey backpack.
Transit Police said they are very concerned by the actions of this suspect.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect, or who witnessed this incident, is asked to contact the Metro Vancouver Transit Police tip line at 604-516-7419 or text 87-77-77 and refer to file# 2019-7149.
