A woman may have avoided being assaulted by threatening to call 9-1-1, Kamloops RCMP said.
A man followed the 52-year-old into a public washroom in Riverside Park at about 3:20 and made "inappropriate comments" to her.
He left when she pulled out a cellphone and threatened to call 9-1-1.
"She felt that she may have been assaulted had she not taken the actions that she did," Cpl. Cheryl Bush said.
Police are looking for a Caucasian in his 50s, about five feet seven inches, medium build, long grey hair in small braids pulled into a a ponytail, wearing blue jeans, a light-coloured shirt and denim jacket.
