Mounties are looking for a masked man who displayed less than heroic traits.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of suspicious circumstances on the 2000 block of Pandosy Street, Jan. 19, 2015 at 10:19 p.m.

“An unknown male suspect was apparently hiding in the bushes when a 24-year-old Kelowna woman and a 15-year-old Kelowna girl walked past,” said Const. Kris Calrk in a press release.

“The suspect reportedly rushed out of his hiding spot, ran between the two young women and slapped their buttocks before fleeing through the bushes to a waiting vehicle.”

Neither the girl nor the woman suffered any physical injuries.

“The suspect was seemingly dressed like a comic book superhero, wearing what appeared to be silver underwear over a red body suit with a red balaclava,” said Clark.

The vehicle was described as a smaller dark-coloured four-door car, which left the scene headed towards downtown Kelowna.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP, Cst Chenard, at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
