RCMP in Squamish are asking the public to be on the lookout for a man accused of multiple “concerning” instances of indecent exposure.

Police say they have received several reports over the past month of an unidentified man exposing his genitals to females who are by themselves in the downtown Squamish area.

The reported incidents all took place in the early evening and early morning hours, RCMP said.
