Crime Stoppers of York Region has released images of a male suspect believed to have masturbated and exposed his genitals while at the SilverCity Newmarket Cinemas Sunday night.

It is alleged that on Sunday, Jan. 12 about 7:30 p.m., the man entered theatre 3 at the 18195 Yonge St. Cineplex, sat behind two women aged between 16 and 20, and proceeded to masturbate underneath his coat. He exposed his genitals while looking at the two girls, police say.

Witnesses reported the incident to theatre management but the man left before he could be confronted.

The suspect is described as a white male between 50 and 60 years old, 6-feet to 6-feet 3-inches tall, with a thin build. He has gray or white slicked back hair, with a white beard, and had reading glasses.

The man was wearing blue jeans, a green camouflage sweater, a brown jacket with fur on the collar and dark-coloured shoes.

If you have any information about the suspect or this indecent act, you can submit a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers of York Region by calling 1-8--222-TIPS (8471) or online here.
