Police said that at about 3:30 p.m., the girls, 12 and 13 years old, were walking on Maple Street near West 18th Avenue when they were approached by the man who exposed himself to them. The girls ran away and informed their parents.
No suspects have been identified and no arrests made.
“The incident is obviously very disturbing,” said Const. Brian Montague. “Children being targeted and potential escalation in criminal behaviour with any sexual offender is always a concern.”
