  • Alleged Voyeur Arrested After Incident With Cellphone In UBC washroom

VANCOUVER — RCMP at the University of British Columbia want to speak to any other possible victims following an alleged incident of voyeurism and the arrest of a suspect.


A police news release says officers at the Point Grey campus were called on Jan. 3.


It says the victim reported a cellphone in a distinctive black case with a cubed and striped pattern had been placed over the top of a stall in a public women's washroom just before 10 p.m.


RCMP say when officers arrived they detained a possible suspect.


The unnamed man was arrested for obstruction and later released.


Police say the case is "active and ongoing," and anyone who may have had a similar experience is urged to call the RCMP's Point Grey detachment.
