Two men who allegedly exposed themselves to three children and their mother on Wednesday night are being sought by Winnipeg police.
The children, aged 5,7, and 9, were at a children’s playground in the 200 block of Varsity View Drive just before 8 p.m. when the incident occurred.
Police say the children were on the play structures when two unknown men began engaging them in a conversation. The suspects later walked away when one of them lowered his pants and exposed himself. Both men were then seen to be performing indecent acts.
