Olympia Police are looking for a man who allegedly made sexual advances at boys in a locker room on Saturday afternoon at Briggs YMCA at 1530 Yelm Highway Southeast, according to The Olympian’s news partner, KIRO-TV.

Officers were dispatched to the gym at about 4 p.m. after a 10-year-old boy told staff about the encounter; a woman told police her 9-year-old son had been approached by the man earlier in the day, KIRO reported.

The suspect, who fled the gym before police arrived, was described as white, in his 20s to 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and skinny. He has brown hair that is thinning at the top and facial hair. He was wearing a black T-shirt under a green hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Anyone with information, or knowledge of other potential victims in the case, is asked to call 360-704-2740.
