Police have identified a suspect in relation to a report of two underage girls being inappropriately touched at a Saanich Peninsula restaurant earlier this month.

Sidney/North Saanich RCMP said the incident happened on the afternoon of June 13 at a restaurant in the 2400-block of Mount Newton Cross Road.

The man reportedly spoke with the two girls briefly before he “inappropriately touched them,” police said in a news release. Photos of the suspect and his vehicle were released Wednesday evening as police asked for the public’s help in identifying the man.

In a Thursday update shortly before noon, police said they had identified the man and were continuing their investigation. Police believe this to be an isolated incident with no further danger to the public.
