No charges have been laid after Chilliwack Creep Catchers video

Chilliwack RCMP are now investigating case

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – An instructor at the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford has been placed on administrative leave, after he was featured in a ‘Creep Catchers’ video.

Members of the Chilliwack Creep Catchers posted a 90-second video on their Facebook page, showing a man waiting inside a McDonald’s restaurant.

The ‘Creep Catchers’ then confront the man, with one member repeatedly asking the man, “How old is the boy you came to meet?”

Eventually, they directly accuse him of trying to meet up with a 13-year-old boy for sex, which he denies.

The man then threatens to call the RCMP before he quickly walks out of the restaurant, gets in his car, and drives away, with the Creep Catchers recording his exit.

Dave Pinton is the spokesperson for the University of the Fraser Valley, and says the instructor has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate.

“These allegations have not been proven, but the University takes them seriously, and we are investigating,” says Pinton. “The University of the Fraser Valley is very committed to providing a safe and secure environment that’s supportive of working, teaching, scholarship and research, and the fair treatment of all members of the University community is our number one priority.”

Pinton adds the Chilliwack RCMP have also opened a file, and says UFV will assist them with that if they can. He notes there have been no complaints on campus about the instructor.
