Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are asking for your assistance as we work to identify a maskless suspect in a theft of adult items from a downtown Victoria business.

On Thursday, April 1st, 2021, staff at a romance business in the 2000-block of Douglas Street reported that a man had stolen adult items from the store. Staff reported that just before 10 p.m. that night, the man entered the business while not wearing a mask. When a staff member told the man that he needed to wear a mask, the man refused and grabbed items in the store. He pushed the staff member out of the way and exited the store. The staff member was not physically injured in the incident.

The stolen items are valued at approximately five hundred dollars.

The business has installed well-placed, high quality surveillance cameras. These captured the incident on camera and the suspect.

The suspect is described as a 30 to 40-year-old Caucasian man standing five feet, nine inches tall. The suspect wore a black baseball hat, black hooded sweater, blue t-shirt, and jeans. Photographs of the suspect are available below.

This file remains under investigation.
