Cottonwood Flasher Caught and Released
Prince George, B.C. – Police were forced to release a man who exposed himself in Cottonwood Island Park yesterday.
RCMP Corporal Craig Douglass says they received a report of an indecent act there around 5 p.m.
He says officers attended the scene and spoke to the complainant and another witness who advised that a man approximately 25 years old had deliberately exposed himself near the boat launch.
Douglass says a search ensued and police caught up with the man but were forced to release him without charge after the witnesses declined to provide statements for court.
He says a similar incident occurred near the same location about a year ago though the suspect then was believed to be 40-50 years old and therefore not believed to be the same person.
In light of yesterday’s incident, police are asking all users of Cottonwood Island Park and other area parks to report suspicious activity to police.
