Looking for a big man in a black van

  • Feb. 22, 2016 11:00 a.m.

The Comox Valley RCMP are seeking witnesses to an incident that occurred near 26th Street and Willemar Avenue, late last week.

On Feb. 18, an indecent act and assault was reported to the RCMP. At approximately 1 p.m., a male in a black panel van stopped and called the victim over to his vehicle, where he propositioned her and exposed himself. The female started to walk away, but the male got out of the van, grabbed her around the waist and pressed himself against her back. The female was able to get away and started yelling, while running down the street. The suspect got back into the van and was last seen driving north on Willemar Avenue.

The suspect is described as 40-45 years old, darker skin complexion and approximately 300 pounds. He was wearing a blue t-shirt and dark blue jeans, driving a black panel van.

RCMP are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who can identify the suspect to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
