Steinbach RCMP are looking for information related to three incidents of a male with a similar description exposing himself to females in the Mitchell area.

On August 17, at approximately 3:15 pm, police were notified that a 16-year-old female out walking her dog saw a metallic blue sedan pass by her slowly and stop. When she walked past the vehicle, a male exposed himself to her. She ran away.

On August 20, at approximately 7:10 p.m., RCMP received a report that a 31-year-old female out jogging saw a metallic blue sedan pass by her and stop. When she ran past the vehicle, a male exited the vehicle and exposed himself to her. He then jumped back in his vehicle and drove off. Further along her route, the male repeated his actions. The female was able to call for a ride home.

On August 31, just before 4 p.m., a 41-year-old woman was walking her dog when she noticed someone following her. When she turned around, a male exposed himself to her and ran off.

Police said in a release that although descriptions of the man vary slightly, they believe the incidents are related. The male is described as Caucasian, in his late twenties or early thirties. He has reddish blonde short hair with a full, scruffy reddish blonde beard. He is approximately 5’10" tall and has a medium build.

RCMP have increased patrols in the area looking for this individual.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Steinbach RCMP at 204-326-4452 or call Manitoba Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, submit a secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com or text "TIPMAN" plus a message to CRIMES (274637).
