Pervert must be stopped

LOCAL residents have been asked to help identify the Canoe Point flasher' after yet another incident at the weekend.
Tannum Sands Police officer-in-charge John Meiers said the female tourist was walking on the beach when a man wearing a sarong exposed himself to her about 8.45am on Saturday morning.
Sergeant Meiers said police believed the man was about 50 years old with very short, greying hair.
'He could be local, if not, he may visit the area,' Sgt Meiers said.
Sgt Meiers said the man's actions were concerning and the woman involved had been frightened.
'Anyone exposing themselves on the beach is a major concern,' Sgt Meiers said.
'It's totally unacceptable behaviour.'
Sgt Meiers said there had been a number of incidents involving a man exposing himself at Canoe Point during the last few years, including at least one in July this year.
'The scenario is similar to a number of other incidents,' Sgt Meiers said.
'However we're not connecting the two at this stage.'
Sgt Meiers said police were concentrating on identifying the flasher involved in this incident and were appealing for the public's help.
