Peeping tom nabbed on Foul Bay Road

Man caught peering in residents' windows on either side of road

An Oak Bay resident with a keen eye for trouble helped lead police to a man seen peering into windows with the curtains open.

The suspect, said to be in his 40s and of no fixed address, was spotted crossing back and forth across Foul Bay Road looking in the windows of homes in the 900 block on Jan. 8 around 10:30 p.m.

Oak Bay police located and identified the man.

He was not charged with a crime, and was taken to downtown Victoria where he planned to stay the night, said Kent Thom, deputy chief of police.

“He does have a past, yes, not with Oak Bay (police) but with other police agencies,” Thom said.
