Among the hundreds of people who flocked to Willows Beach to bask in Sunday’s summer temperatures, one man needed a reminder that the Oak Bay beach is not, in fact, a nude beach.
A woman walking her dog around 6 p.m. spotted the over-exposed sunbather who thought he picked a private spot behind a pile of rocks near Cattle Point, said Oak Bay police spokesman Const. Rick Anthony.
Upon being discovered, the man stood up and made lewd gestures toward the woman.
She called police and the 48-year-old man was arrested for committing an indecent act.
Later in the evening around 8 p.m., Oak Bay police were called to Oak Bay Avenue and Hampshire Road after a man in his 20s approached two 12-year-old girls, asked them questions and offered them a ride in his car.
The girls declined the ride, made sure they stayed in a busy area and called police. Officers searched the area but could not find the man. Police are working to identify him.
“Neither of the girls felt threatened by the male and acted appropriately in their reporting their suspicions to police,” Anthony said.
