One disgruntled anti-masker took his frustrations with the newly reinstated mandate a little too far after being asked to put on a mask over the weekend.
On Saturday, August 28th, just before 9 p.m., Port Alberni RCMP were called to a disturbance at a local restaurant where a man had reportedly urinated inside.
The caller said that an unknown man had entered the restaurant and then caused a disturbance when he was confronted by staff for not wearing a mask.
The man became verbally aggressive and abusive, refusing to wear a mask.
After a heated discussion, the unknown man left the restaurant.
Soon after, he returned to the restaurant and urinated at the counter.
One customer filmed the incident which was later posted to Facebook. In the video, the suspect can be seen pulling his pants down before urinating all over the counter.
Viewer discretion advised:
“The suspect initially left the business, only to return shortly after. He pulled down his pants and began to urinate on the floor directly in front of the till, much to the shock and screams of staff and the customers,” stated BC RCMP Media Relations Officer Sergeant Chris Manseau.
“The Port Alberni RCMP are now releasing a photo of the suspect in hopes of identifying him.”
“His actions are being investigated as an indecent act, as it appears that he willfully performed this act with the intent to insult or offend in a public place” Manseau added.
Police urge anyone with information regarding this incident, or if you can identify this suspect to call the Port Alberni RCMP at (250) 723-2424 and cite file #2021-9151.
