A male Hispanic in dark-colored clothing was seen masturbating outside a basement apartment window, according to a police dispatch report.
Several hours later, a similar crime was reported in the city’s Bowanville community.
Shortly after 3 a.m., a woman caught a man masturbating outside her window on the 2200 block of West Foster Avenue, near Foster and Leavitt.
