Oak Bay Police stopped a man sunbathing in the buff June 7. A dog-walker reported a naked man on Willows Beach near Cattle Point around 6 p.m.

The man stood and acted in a lewd manner. The 46-year-old man told police he believed it was private where he was sunbathing nude behind a pile of rocks. He was  arrested for committing an indecent act.

 

 

Girls decline ride

Two girls did the right thing after being approached by a man Sunday afternoon, say Oak Bay Police.

Shortly after 8 p.m. on June 7, police responded to Oak Bay Avenue and Hampshire Road where two 12-year-old girls were approached by a man in his 20s who offered them a ride in his car. The girls gave him no information, declined the ride, ensured that they were in a busy, safe area and called police. The man was not located and police are working to identify him. Neither of the girls felt threatened by the man.

 

 

Test drive goes wrong

A man known to police for property crime offences was arrested June 7 after taking a bike on a ‘test drive’ the day before.

On June 6 a $1,000 bicycle was taken for a “test drive” from Oak Bay Bicycles and never returned. The theft was reported to Victoria Police. On June 7, an employee of the shop who dealt with the bike thief the day before recognized him in the 2000 block of Oak Bay Avenue and called police. Oak Bay Police arrested a 22-year-old resident of Victoria and liaised with VicPD. The man was released to appear in court at a future date.
