Police ask for info on alleged sex offender

SURREY – The Surrey RCMP is warning the public about a North Vancouver man accused of trying to lure a Surrey girl for sex.

Victor Overfield was arrested on Dec. 19, 2014, and charged with one count of luring a child, and one count of invitation to sexual touching. Overfield had volunteered with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets in North Vancouver from 2007 to 2012 and with the Navy League Cadets in Vancouver from 2012 until his arrest.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said police are asking anyone with information about Overfield “that would be helpful to the police investigation” to call investigators at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Overfield has been released from custody, pending his next court appearance, on the condition he doesn’t contact his alleged victim or any other youngsters.

“Several other conditions set to ensure the safety of the public are also part of his release,” Paquet said.
