Hamilton police are on the lookout for a man who exposed himself to a young woman near the White Chapel Cemetery on Main Street West last Friday night.
Const. Debbie McGreal-Dinning said a 26-year-old woman was walking near the corner of Beaucourt and Mericourt roads at about 10 p.m. when she felt a tap on her shoulder. She turned around to find the flasher.
When the woman hurried off, the man trailed her for a short distance but stopped before she reached her home, where she called police. She was uninjured.
The suspect is described as white, in his late 20s to early 30s; about five feet five inches tall, with an average build and light hair. He was unshaven and wore a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and baggy pants.
The incident is eerily similar to one on in the same area shortly before 5 p.m. on Dec. 30. In that case, the suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s or early 30s, between six feet and six feet two inches tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded jacket with the hood up and black pants.
Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to call Det. James O’Hara at 905-546-3817.
