Warrant issued in threat case
May 25 2012
Victoria police have issued a warrant for a violent offender who they say threatened to kill a pregnant woman earlier this month.
Police said the woman was threatened by a man in her neighbourhood. They did not want to say where she lived.
"It was a pretty traumatic ordeal for her," said police spokesman Mike Tucker.
Police have issued a warrant for Marc William Bauer, 39.
Officers have had some contact with Bauer, who promised to turn himself in but has not followed through. They don't know where he is, Tucker said.
Bauer is also charged with uttering death threats after allegedly threatening to kill a Victoria police officer during a traffic stop in January.
Bauer has so far eluded police, who are worried he might act on his threats.
"Bauer has shown signs of escalating violent behaviour, coupled with a severe alcohol addiction that makes him unpredictable and violent," Tucker said in a statement.
Bauer is described as white, 5-foot-11, with a medium build, short blond hair and green eyes.
Anyone who sees Bauer or has information about his whereabouts is asked to call Victoria police at 250-995-7654 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
