Calgary police are asking for the public's help after several reports of a man masturbating near a pathway in the southwest.

There have been five reported incidents since June 10 near the green space between the Glenmore Landing area and the South Glenmore Sail Club. All incidents have taken place on the lower and upper bike paths, according to police.

In each case, a woman has seen a man masturbating near the pathway, often behind bushes. Each incident has taken place between mid-afternoon and early evening.

The last incident occurred Thursday at roughly 7 p.m. MT. A woman was walking on a path in the area when she saw a man concealed within some bushes. He was partially clothed and masturbating.

The woman continued to walk along the path and then saw the man flee the area.

In all cases, the suspect did not approach the women but investigators say they believe the incidents could be related.

The suspect is described as being 30- to 40-years-old, clean shaven with a dark skin tone and dark hair. He is believed to be of Middle Eastern descent.

Anyone with information is asked to call police. Anyone witnessing an indecent act should call 911 immediately.
