Cadet volunteer charged with child luring

Victor Overfield arrested after under-age Surrey girl filed complaint with RCMP; Police seeking other potential victims.

A North Vancouver man has been arrested and charged with child luring and invitation to sexual touching a female under 16 – and Surrey RCMP are encouraging other potential victims to come forward.

Victor Marco Antonio Overfield, 27, was arrested and charged Dec. 19, 2014.

The offences allegedly took place in early November last year and Surrey Mounties were contacted a month later. Overfield was charged Dec. 19.

Police say Overfield 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 late last year.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said there is no indication there are additional victims, but police have released Overfield’s identity out of an abundance of caution.

“If there’s even one victim out there, we need to be in contact,” he said, adding the release of Overfield’s volunteer work with cadet groups was also intentional. “In that capacity, he would have been in touch with under-age persons.”

Overfield was released from custody in early January under several conditions, including that he have no contact with his alleged victim or other young people. His next court date is scheduled for March 13 in Surrey Provincial Court.

Anyone with more information pertaining to Overfield is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604‑599‑0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1‑800‑222‑TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.
