Victoria police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect after adult items were stolen from a downtown romance business on April 1.
A business in the 2000-block of Douglas Street reported a man stole $500 worth of items just before 10 p.m., after entering the business without a mask.
When a staff member told the man he needed to wear a mask, the man refused and allegedly grabbed the items before pushing the worker out of the way and leaving the store. Police said the worker wasn’t injured.
