While this past weekend’s protests were relatively incident free, VicPD are hoping the public can help with identifying one mischief maker.
A man who is suspected of damaging multiple vehicles in a parking lot near the BC Legislature on the weekend is currently the focus of police, and they’re hoping someone in the area may have seen something to aid their investigation.
On the afternoon of Saturday, February 5th, officers were deployed to downtown Victoria as protestors and anti-protestors gathered.
During the protest, officers were approached by multiple people who had parked their vehicles in a lot at 481 Kingston Street.
According to those people, they had witnessed a man in the process of damaging their vehicles and had even managed to photograph the suspect.
Upon investigation, officers found the suspect had already departed the area.
Once the protest had wound down, officers connected with those whose vehicles had been damaged and continued the investigation. The vehicles had damage to the paint, surfaces and tires. Items had also been stolen from the vehicles.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, between the age of 25 and 35-years-old with a medium build. He has short dark brown hair and green eyes. He also has a noticeable birthmark on the right side of his neck.
At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black bomber jacket and a red t-shirt with a gold hoop earring in his right ear.
Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654.
