West Shore RCMP is looking for a man that was caught masturbating in public at Thetis Lake on Jan. 1.

Around noon, two 12-year-old boys saw a man masturbating near the lake while exposing his genitals and only wearing boxers.

Following the indecent act the suspect got up, went for a swim in the lake, got dressed and left. The suspect did not speak to the boys or make direct contact with them.

The incident took place on the waterfront between the main beach and the dog beach.
