Whitehorse RCMP are looking for a man who allegedly masturbated on a trail in the Golden Horn subdivision June 27.

A member of the public called the police around 8 p.m. to report the incident that took place on a trail that runs through a private property.

“The witness reported they observed an adult man engaged in an indecent act,” police said in a news release.

“After a brief interaction, the man left.”

Police described the man as having tan or olive skin.

He is between six feet and six-foot-two, with short dark hair, no facial hair and an athletic medium build.

The man was seen with an orange ATV with no windshield and black and metallic detailing.

He had a large grey or silver dog, believed to be a standard poodle or a poodle cross.

Under the criminal code a person found guilty of an indecent act faces up to two years in prison.

“The man seemed familiar with the Golden Horn area and may live locally,” police said.

RCMP are asking people to not approach anyone matching the man’s description and to report any sighting by calling 667-5555.
