BC RCMP are asking any potential victims of an alleged voyeur to come forward with any information that they may have.

The incident allegedly took place on Thursday, May 3 at the Point Grey UBC campus just before 10 pm at the 6300-block of Agronomy Road.

The victim reports that while she was using the bathroom a cellphone was placed over the top of the stall.

In a release, the RCMP state that, “the cell phone was described as having a distinctive case—black with a cubed and striped pattern.”

In addition, they note that there was a delay in response after the victim alerted Campus Security who initially attended the incident and immediately called RCMP.

Although the police were delayed in their response, they detained a man who was believed to be the suspect. Following this, he was arrested for obstruction and later released.

Vancouver Is Awesome reached out to UBC Media Relations for a comment, however, they informed us that they were unable to provide further details regarding the incident at this time.

“UBC treats the safety and security of its students, faculty and staff very seriously. We cannot comment on the details of this incident as it is an active police investigation,” said Kurt Heinrich, Senior Director, UBC Media Relations.

“Like the RCMP, we encourage all members of the UBC community to contact police immediately if they see a crime in progress, have knowledge of crime that’s occurred, or are concerned about their or the community’s safety.”

Since the investigation is active and ongoing, there are no further details available at this time from the RCMP, either.

“The incident occurred at a residential building in the women’s washroom,” said Sgt. Janelle Shoihet, Media Relations Officer, Lower Mainland District, RCMP.
“I have no information about there being any exchange between the victim and the accused or why he left the washroom.”
The University RCMP encourages anyone who may have had similar experience to please call 604-224-1322. In addition, they would like to remind the public that if a crime is being committed you should call 911 immediately.
