Boy on the run after flashing multiple women, grabbing one on the backside, Gold Coast

Police are on the hunt for a boy who’s believed to have flashed multiple women in Helensvale this month, and grabbed one on the backside.

Investigations are underway into the five incidents of ‘wilful exposure’ as well as one incident of indecent assault, which happened on three separate dates.

The boy first flashed three women aged 41, 67 and 71-years-old in a pedestrian tunnel under the Gold Coast Highway on Thursday January 6, sometime between 11.30 am and 12.15pm.


He’s then understood to have approached a 16-year-old in the same tunnel around 3.30 pm on January 7, where he exposed himself again.

A week later, on Friday January 14, the boy flashed a 21-year-old woman and a 47-year-old in the same tunnel between 12.50 pm and 2.00 pm.

Police say in this instance he also grabbed the 21-year-old on the buttocks.

Investigations are now underway to try and locate the boy, believed to be in his mid-teens.

He is described as Caucasian, possibly aged in his mid-teens, approximately 175cm tall with a proportionate build.

Anyone with information, or any further victims, is being urged to contact police.
