Delta Police Release Composite Sketch Of South Asian Suspect In Indecent Act

Darpan News Desk, 13 Mar, 2020
  • Delta Police Release Composite Sketch Of South Asian Suspect In Indecent Act

The public was advised in early February that an indecent act had occurred in the park via a press release and police social media accounts.


During the incident a woman was sitting with her young daughter watching another child’s soccer practice. A man described as South Asian, approximately 30 years old with a slim build, black hair, and wearing a red hoodie, approached her. He was separated from the mother and child by a chain link fence, and proceeded to masturbate close by her.


The woman yelled out to alert people nearby, and the man ran off. Unfortunately the woman did not have a cell phone on her, and there was a time delay of approximately two hours before police were notified. Police attended and patrolled the area, but did not find anyone matching the description of the suspect.


Since that time police have taken a number of investigative steps, and are now going back to the public with a sketch of the suspect.


“Anyone who recognizes the individual based on this sketch, or who thinks they may have more information for police is asked to contact the Delta Police Department Sex Crimes Unit at 604-946-4411 and cite file 20-5528,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police.


At this time police cannot confirm whether this suspect is the one linked to another instance where a teenage girl had encountered a man masturbating in the park area adjacent to the George Mackie Public Library in the afternoon of January 23.
