Victoria Police is seeking public assistance in identifying a suspect who may be linked to three different robberies in downtown Victoria this month.
Officers were investigating a robbery that took place on Thursday, April 11th, when they realized the suspect may be the same one who committed two other robberies in the area.
The initial robbery took place on April 11th at around 7:40 p.m. at a local business in the 1600-block of Fort Street. The suspect stole an undisclosed amount of cash and fled before the police arrived.
He was described as a Caucasian man, wearing a grey balaclava, black shirt, and dark pants.
Upon further investigation, officers saw that he may be connected to two other robberies – one of which took place earlier that day.
Just after midnight, on April 11th, a suspect stole money and cigarettes at a business in the 800-block of Bay St.
Earlier, on April 5th, a similar robbery was conducted where money and cigarettes were stolen from a business in the 2900-block of Douglas Street.
Victoria Police have released the following surveillance images, along with the original one featured above, in hopes that someone will recognize the suspect.
