Burnaby RCMP seek pantless driver reportedly masturbating at red light

Police say teen videoed a man 'exposed from his waist to his knees' committing an indecent act in a vehicle beside a bus stopped at Lougheed Highway and Gaglardi Way Thursday afternoon.

If you were on a bus on Lougheed Highway near Gaglardi Way Thursday afternoon and spotted a pantless man in a vehicle beside you, Burnaby RCMP want to speak with you.

The detachment got a report a driver stopped at a red light at the intersection had been seen masturbating inside his vehicle next to a westbound 136 Brentwood Station bus.

The incident happened at around 3:55 p.m., and a teen riding on the bus captured video of the suspect, according to a Burnaby RCMP news release.

“The suspect did not appear to be wearing pants, as he was exposed from his waist to his knees,” stated the release. “The suspect vehicle appears to be grey”

Investigators are now looking to speak with anyone else, including drivers or other bus passengers, who may have also witnessed the indecent act or seen the suspect or his vehicle.

“This is concerning behaviour," Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Alexa Hodgins said in the release.  “Police want the public to be aware of this incident and to report any similar activity.”

The teen’s video didn’t capture a view of the whole suspect vehicle or its licence plate, but police are working to secure other video from the area, according to the release.

Burnaby RCMP have also released a couple blurry photos of the suspect in the hopes he may be identified.

He is described as a white man in his 50s, with a medium to heavy build. 

He was wearing a black jacket with white stripes down the arms.

Local police have not gotten any other recent reports of similar behaviour, according to the release, but investigators are checking for similar incidents in other jurisdictions across the Lower Mainland as the suspect was in a vehicle.

Anyone with information about this incident or the suspect is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. Quote file number 22-15593.
