Vancouver police are not saying much about a bizarre incident at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia last month.

It is alleged a mystery woman turned on a fire hose in the hotel’s stairwell, causing $1 million in damages.

CrimeStoppers put out a Tweet on Wednesday afternoon, asking for any information about the incident.

Constable Brian Montague with Vancouver police told Global News the incident occurred on Sept. 30, but they are not sharing any other details at this time.

“If we are unable to identify the person of interest in the photo, we will revisit the idea of providing additional information publically,” said Montague.

Hotel Georgia first opened in 1927. It underwent an extensive renovation in 2011 and was unveiled as luxury Rosewood Hotel Georgia in June, 2011.

A representative for Rosewood Hotels told Global News the flood took place at The Private Residences at Hotel Georgia and caused minor damage to the hotel.

No hotel guests were affected.

Since the incident is under police investigation, the hotel says it can’t comment further at this time.
