The Victoria Police Department is asking for public assistance in identifying a suspect in an investigation into a spitting incident which has been ongoing since January.
Police said the assault occurred just after noon on Jan. 20 at a business in the 400-block of Simcoe Street in James Bay. Officers received a report that an employee was confronted by a male customer who, without warning, pulled down his mask and spat on the employee before leaving the business.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his early to mid sixties, standing around 5’8” with a medium build. At the time of the incident, the man had a grey beard, wore black-rimmed glasses, a grey hooded sweatshirt, tan pants and black shoes.
The incident remains under investigation and police ask anyone who may be able to identify the suspect, or who has further information on the incident, to contact the VicPD reporting desk at 250-995-7654 ext. 1.
