Woman reports incident in Walmart parking lot

The Woodstock Police Force announced Monday, Jan. 22, that it is actively investigating the report of indecent exposure on Friday, Jan. 19, in Woodstock. 

In a media release, Deputy Chief Mark Bennett said the incident allegedly occurred at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Walmart store located in Woodstock.

“A female victim reported that as she was exiting the Walmart store and walking toward her vehicle, she noticed a male individual behind a nearby vehicle,” the WPF said in the release. “As the victim approached her own vehicle, the male suspect appeared from behind the adjacent vehicle, exposing himself to her. The victim was able to safely get to her vehicle and leave without further incident.”

Police described the suspect as a middle-aged Caucasian male with dark hair wearing a winter toque and jeans.

The Woodstock Police Force asked for public assistance in its investigation.

“Individuals who may have witnessed the incident or have dashcam footage from the area are urged to come forward and contact Sgt. Seth Cahill at (506) 325-4601,” the WPF statement asked.
