Metro Vancouver Transit Police are looking for two people who could be key to bringing about charges in a voyeurism case at the North Vancouver SeaBus terminal.
Transit police responded to the terminal on Friday, Sept. 13 after receiving a report that a man was allegedly taking photos up women’s skirts with his smartphone.
A man at the terminal first allegedly saw the suspect pretending to tie his shoe while taking photos around 11 a.m. and immediately alerted a SeaBus employee. When the witness and employee were talking, they allegedly saw the suspect making a second attempt at taking up-skirt photos and called police. The employee then told the woman what had happened.
Officers arrested the suspect and seized his cellphone with the intention of laying charges. However, both the victim and the witness left the terminal before police could get their names and contact information. Police say the woman they are looking for is about 20 years old and was wearing a red dress at the time.
Investigators are hoping a tip from the public can lead them to either the victim or the witness who first noticed the alleged modern-day peeping Tom. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 604-515-8300.
