Police search for Peeping Tom in Nanoose Bay

RCMP continue to investigate incident on SeaBlush Road on Wednesday afternoon

Police are on the look out for a Peeping Tom after a Nanoose Bay woman became a victim of voyeurism Wednesday afternoon.

According to a news release issued by Oceanside RCMP, a woman who lives along SeaBlush Road noticed a man peering through her bedroom window while she was getting dressed at approximately

1 p.m.

“Once noticed the male immediately departed and could not be located,” states the release. “As the area behind the home was densely forested it appears that the man would have had to go out of his way to get to his vantage point.”

Police describe the suspect as a Caucasian male, 50 to 60 years old, with an average height and greying hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black raincoat with a circular white emblem on the right front shoulder.

Cpl. Jesse Foreman said this is an isolated incident.

He said a person can be convicted of voyeurism, which he explains is “looking at someone in an area where they should expect complete privacy or where they are expected to be nude such as in a bathroom or private bedroom.”

Police are looking to identify the male suspect. If you have any information please contact the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
