Durham Police investigators are trying to identify a male who was seen committing an indecent act near Dryden Boulevard and Garden Street in Whitby.
On November 15 at about 9:40 am, the suspect stopped his vehicle to ask a 15-year-old female for directions. The suspect was committing an indecent act while interacting with the victim. The same suspect was observed minutes later by the victim and another female teen in the area of Hemingford Place in Whitby, said a police statement.
It is believed that this same suspect also committed the same offence on October 21, this year, when he approached another teenaged female at the Jack Wilson Park on Anderson Street in Whitby. He asked for directions while committing an indecent act. This was not reported to police until November 15.
The suspect in both incidents is described as male, tanned complexion, in his late teens, with shoulder length brown hair. He was wearing a yellow t-shirt. The suspect vehicle is described as an older blue four-door sedan.
Investigators are asking residents and drivers to review video surveillance or dash-cam video at the time of the incidents to assist in identifying the suspect or vehicle.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact D/Cst Bortoluss of the Central West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1877.
