Victoria, BC – Our Special Victims Unit detectives are continuing to investigate the reports of sexualized violence associated with a downtown Victoria bar and grill. We continue to listen to those who are sharing information with us.
Many people have come forward with information requiring significant resources to properly respond. These investigations take time. Again, we thank those who have come forward to date and appreciate your patience.
If you have information about these reports and have not yet spoken to our investigators please call our Report Desk at (250) 995-7655 ext 1.
You can also report sexualized violence with the support of the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre. Call their access line for service intake and information Monday-Friday 9:30-5:00 pm, at (250) 383-3232. If you’ve been sexually assaulted in the last 7 days immediate support and medical care is available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week at their Sexual Assault Clinic. The best way to access the clinic services is to call the Vancouver Island Crisis Line at 1-888-494-3888. From there, ask to be connected with a VSAC Sexual Assault Support Worker to discuss options and accessing the clinic. You do not have to report sexualized violence to police to access supports.
The investigation remains active. We will share further updates as we are able.
Editors Note: An Ontario news agency has indicated that we have publicly verified the subject of our investigation. This is inaccurate. We are only able to identify subjects of investigations in specific circumstances such as a known immediate risk to the public, arrest or charges being sworn.
