  • Vancouver Police investigation leads to charges in stalking case

A Vancouver Police investigation has led to approved criminal charges in an alleged stalking case. The charges were approved by BC Prosecution Service on Wednesday.

“This case generated significant attention on social media and in the mainstream news after a video was posted online last month,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. “We understand the incident caused anxiety in the community, and we’re pleased with the outcome of the investigation.”

Vancouver Police began investigating after a woman posted a video to social media and reported to police that she had been followed by a man while walking in Vancouver on March 17.

Mohammed Majidpour, a 33-year-old resident of no fixed address, is now charged with one count of criminal harassment in relation to that incident. As a result of the VPD investigation, the following charges have also been approved by Crown counsel for other, separate incidents:

  • One count of criminal harassment in connection to an incident that occurred March 13 near Dunsmuir and Granville Street
  • One count of mischief in connection to an incident that occurred March 14 at a hotel on Burrard Street
  • One count of break and enter in connection to an incident that occurred March 16 at a hotel on Burrard Street
  • One count of assault with a weapon in connection to an incident that occurred March 19 near Bute and Robson Street
  • One count of uttering threats in connection to an incident that occurred March 19 near Bute and Robson Street

Majidpour is in custody at this time.
