Robberies originating from escort service sites

Darpan News Desk Surrey RCMP, 29 Nov, 2021 12:22 PM
  • Robberies originating from escort service sites

Surrey RCMP is cautioning members of the public following a series of robberies that originated through escort service sites.

Recently, Surrey RCMP has seen a few instances of men hiring an escort, meeting at a prearranged location for a sexual encounter and then being robbed. It is believed that others may have been victimized but have not come forward to police. Surrey RCMP are encouraging any additional victims to contact police at 604-599-0502.

Any encounters that involve meeting up with unknown individuals that take place behind closed doors, brings about inherent risk to all parties involved.

If you choose to meet up with someone who is unknown to you, it is recommended to take precautions, including:

  • Do not use drugs or alcohol that can impair your ability to keep yourself safe;
  • Do not consume anything provided to you by the other person;
  • Do not have valuables easily accessible;
  • Use a buddy system so that someone knows where you are and can contact police should you not check in with them.
