A teenage victim on board the bus saw the suspect committing the act, and took a short video which was shared with police.
Burnaby RCMP’s High Risk Offender Unit (HRO) led the file, obtaining additional evidence. With the assistance of CCTV video, investigators were able to identify a suspect vehicle and then a suspect.
On August 18, 2022, Patrick Joseph Paul Pelletier of Port Moody was charged with two counts of committing an Indecent Act.
On February 27, 2023 Pelletier entered a guilty plea to one count of Indecent Act.
We would like to acknowledge the teenage victim in this case for coming forward to police and sharing video that was instrumental in this investigation, said Sgt. Aly Mohan, with Burnaby RCMP General Investigation Services (GIS).
It is important that police hear about these types of incidents, as this type of criminal behaviour is not acceptable in our community.
