Vancouver police say the individual arrested Tuesday was brought into custody in relation to an investigation involving multiple incidents of indecent exposure in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood.

The incidents involved students at York House School, which is an all-girls school for students from kindergarten to Grade 12.

Vancouver police say the investigation dates back months, with several female students reporting a man in a black SUV pulling up beside them and exposing himself before driving away.

RCMP says the allegations relate to incidents that allegedly occurred while the officer was off-duty. RCMP went on to say an internal code of conduct investigation is underway and the officer has been suspended with pay.
