With a crisp image in hand, Victoria police made quick work of the search for a suspect after a business owner snapped a photo during an apparent assault.
Within a few hours of issuing the image, VicPD took to social media to let residents know they’d identified a suspect.
VicPD was called Wednesday (Aug. 18) by a business owner who reported a man had damaged a sign outside his business in the 2500-block of Government Street. The business owner told officers that when he asked the man to stop, the man threw something at him. The business owner snapped a photo of the suspect, described as a 5’10” Caucasian man with a medium build.
He has a shaved head and was cleanly shaven except for a dark brown moustache and goatee. He was wearing a light-coloured camouflage tank top, black Nike brand pants, white sneakers and a blue backpack.
No injuries were reported.
Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654 or report anonymously through Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
