A Victoria man has been arrested and charged in relation to an alleged indecent act on Wednesday afternoon near a high school.

Just after noon on Wednesday October 13, frontline officers from the Sooke RCMP were called to investigate several reports of a man who was allegedly seen committing an indecent act in a truck, parked near a high-school located in the 6200-block of Sooke Road.

Prior to police arrival the man had fled, however witness reports were instrumental in allowing officers to identify the man, states Sgt. Kevin Shaw of the Sooke RCMP. Later the same evening, officers located the truck and driver, Andrew Durant, 34, of Victoria, was arrested without incident and held in custody until his court appearance today. He has been remanded into custody until his next appearance on October 21, 2021."

On October 14, 2021 the BC Prosecution Service approved one count of committing an indecent act in a public place in relation to the incident.

Sgt. Shaw states, We have been in close contact with the school administration and provided them relevant information to help ensure student safety.

Anyone who was a witness to the incident and has not already spoken with police is asked to contact the Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241.
