Police Looking for Tips in University District Indecent Acts

November 10, 2015

Kingston Police detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying what is believed to be the same male motorist who is a suspect in two separate indecent acts that occurred in and around the University District.

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on October 25 a female was walking on a Collingwood Street sidewalk near Earl Street when an older model, dark-coloured passenger car approached her westbound on Earl Street. The lone male driver attempted to engage in some small conversation with the female pedestrian, getting her attention to observe him exposing himself while still seated in the vehicle. The male continued to drive beside the woman for a short period of time before driving away. The licence plate wasn’t observed. He is described as Caucasian, mid-twenties in age, average build, short dark hair, unshaven and was wearing a baseball cap and a dark-coloured tank-top.

Then at approximately 1:45 p.m. on October 27 a second female was walking westbound on Earl Street at Clergy Street when a lone male driver, having similar physical and vehicle descriptors as from the first incident, drove up beside her, made a comment to get her attention and then exposed himself to her. He then drove away without any further exchange. This male was described as Caucasian, between 25-35 years of age, short brown hair, unshaven, brown eyes and wearing a dark-coloured forward-facing baseball cap. The vehicle was described as an older model, small to average size car, with a wine or burgundy colour. The complainant feels it resembles a Chevrolet or Pontiac from the 1990’s. Either the exhaust or the engine were described as rumbling.

Aside from personal safety being the first priority, investigators are asking the public to obtain the licence plate of a vehicle they suspect of being involved. Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Tanya Compeau at 613-549-4660 ext. 6321 or via email at
