Police say a man who exposed himself to a young girl in the city’s southwest two weeks ago may have been involved in two other similar incidents in the same area last year.

Det. Shawn Bowen was at the scene of the alleged crime yesterday, where just two weeks before, the suspect exposed himself to a 10-year old girl in the hallway of the Plaza 34 centre at 19th Street SW where she was having music lessons.

“We’re looking into two incidents in the fall of 2009 with the same (motive) to see if they are connected. It could be someone in the area,” he said.

The girl’s mother, who cannot be identified, said while her daughter is dealing well with the incident, she is worried what could have happened if the witness didn’t step in to help the young girl.

“I still have nightmares about it. But I’m very thankful the police are taking it so seriously,” she said.
