The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP are currently investigating the report of an indecent act, which occurred Tuesday afternoon along a section of the Rail Trail.

On Wednesday May 24, 2017 at 1:00 pm the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP received a report of an indecent act which had occurred the day before on Tuesday May 23, 2017. The incident occurred at 1:00 pm on the Rail Trail off of Kickwillie Loop, approximately at the one kilometre mark, known as the first beach area.

The female complainant stated that an unknown male was in a wooded area and was observed masturbating. The male continued to masturbate and began walking toward the complainant and acknowledge her verbally. The woman ignored the man and as she looked over to get her dog out of the water, the man saw the dog and put his genitals back in his shorts and departed the area.

The male is described as Caucasian approximately 45-50 years old, 5'10" tall, and was wearing dark shorts.

The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP ask the general public to report any other similar incidents of this nature and for those who use the Rail Trail in this area to be aware of the reported incident.
