Woman locked herself in bicycle cage to evade man: police

Locked-out male allegedly exposed himself, sought in indecent act investigation

A woman protected herself from a man who followed her into the Toronto General Hospital parking garage by locking herself in a bicycle cage Friday morning, police said yesterday.

Police have released images of a man in the garage in hopes of identifying him in the investigation of an indecent act.

On May 21 at about 7 a.m. officers responded to a call for an indecent act at the hospital at Elizabeth Street and Gerrard Street West.

A female employee reported a man followed her into the parking garage at TGH and she locked herself in a bicycle cage to protect herself.

Unable to get into the bicycle cage, the male remained outside and allegedly exposed his genitals, before eventually leaving the garage.

Later he was seen approaching another female on Elizabeth street, police said.

The man is described as about 5-foot-7, weighing about 150 pounds, and having a thin build and a short beard.

He was pictured wearing a red puffy jacket with the hood up, black pants and black running shoes.

One of the images released by police show a man ion a garage through a screen, as though he is pacing outside a cage. Police have not released information on how the photo was acquired.
