RCMP release sketch of man wanted in UBC voyeurism incident


RCMP are asking for your help identifying a suspect in a voyeurism incident at the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus earlier this month.

He’s described as South Asian or Middle Eastern, 30 to 40 years old and about five-foot-eight.

The suspect was seen wearing a light-colored hoodie or long-sleeved shirt with grey sweatpants and wearing small diamond or crystal earrings.


The incident happened on Sept. 13 at a residence in the Lower Mall.

University RCMP said a woman was showering in a women’s-only washroom and had a man to speak to her from another shower stall. A second female walked into the washroom and saw the man, who was allegedly naked and masturbating.

In another case in Burnaby in July, Mounties arrested a man for similar acts at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.

In that case, an unknown man allegedly used a cellphone to take pictures in a women’s washroom.
