Police have made an arrest following an investigation into an indecent exposure incident at the Sandman Hotel that occurred on June 20.
The Williams Lake RCMP arrested a male at 7:45 a.m. on Friday, June 22. He is currently in custody with the Williams Lake RCMP pending further investigation.
At approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, an employee at the Sandman Hotel in Williams Lake reported to the RCMP that an indecent sexual act had occurred.
Allegedly, while a female employee was cleaning a room, the suspect male, described as Caucasian, tall and very heavy set with short scruffy hair, entered the same room and touched himself inappropriately.
Police say it appears that the suspect wanted the employee to watch him as he did this. The employee ran out of the room and reported this to another employee who was near by. The suspect fled. The RCMP searched the building and surrounding area but could not locate the suspect at that time.
The RCMP is asking anyone who may have information on this incident to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
