On Oct. 16 6:19 a.m., another Kelowna woman was walking on Mission Parkway between Ziprick Road and Leckie Road when an unknown man wearing a hoodie with hood up, approached her exposing himself.

“In all three cases the man was wearing a hoodie with the hood up to cover his face,” said Cpl. Joe Duncan.
