      Police have released a composite sketch of a suspect allegedly involved in an indecent act in a Delta park over a month ago.

      Delta Police Department (DPD) had previously stated on February 4 that a woman reported that she had been sitting with her young daughter while watching a soccer game in a North Delta park on January 31 when a man approached them.

      He was separated from the woman and her child by a chainlink fence.

      However, when he began to masturbate, the woman yelled out to alert people nearby, the man ran away.

      As she didn’t have a cellphone with her, there was a delay of about two hours before she notified police.

      Although officers attended the area, they were unable to locate him.

      The suspect is described as a South Asian male about 30 years old with a slim build and black hair, and he was wearing a red hoodie at the time.

      As the investigation is continuing on, the DPD released a composite sketch of the suspect on March 11.

      The DPD is unable to confirm if this suspect is connected to another incident that took place in a park near the George Mackie Public Library on January 23.

      In that incident, a female teenager reported she had encountered a male suspect who was masturbating in the park in the afternoon.

      Anyone who recognizes or can identify the individual in the composite sketch, or has any relevant information, is asked to contact the DPD at 604-946-4411.

      Meanwhile on March 9, Burnaby RCMP released a composite sketch of a male suspect who allegedly exposed himself to a woman in Burnaby on February 20.
