RCMP at the University of British Columbia are asking potential victims to contact them after a voyeurism incident last week.
Police say the incident happened on Jan. 3, in a public restroom in the 6300-block of Agronomy Road.
The victim told police someone reached and placed a cell phone over top of the bathroom stall while they were using the washroom. The cell phone has a unique black case with a cubed and striped pattern, police say.
The RCMP confirmed in a statement that the victim first called Campus Security, who then alerted University RCMP, which caused what they say is a "slight delay" in their response time.
A man believed to be the suspect was arrested for obstruction, but later released, police added. The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
University RCMP says anyone with a similar experience should call 604-224-1322, and reminds the public that if a crime is being committed you should call 911 immediately.
