Victoria, BC –Our investigators continue to receive reports of a series of indecent phone calls, to businesses in Victoria. As these calls continue, our Investigative Services Division detectives are updating their approach with members of the public in regards to these incidents.

Investigators are now asking those who experience these calls to record them, if and when possible and safe to do so.

Investigators believe that the same male may be responsible.

We’re asking that if you’ve received calls of this nature you do the following:

  • Write down the time, date and phone number of the call
  • Make notes of exactly what was said by the caller (specific words or phrases used) and anything identifying or unique about the voice, tone etc.
  • Record the calls when safe and possible to do so
  • Report the call to us on our non-emergency line at 250-995-7654.

These calls are multijurisdictional in nature. Our Major Crime detectives continue to work with our partners from the RCMP on the lower Mainland in our efforts to locate the person responsible as the calls are spanning province wide.

If you know who is making these calls, please call our non-emergency line at 250-995-7654. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
