Vancouver police search for woman connected to Pidgin protests
A 25-year-old Vancouver woman is wanted by police in connection with protests at the Pidgin restaurant.
Robyn Claire Pickell allegedly attempted to chain and lock the restaurant’s front doors on March 15, Vancouver police said in a news release today (May 3).
Police said Pickell is wanted for mischief and faces charges.
Pidgin has been targeted by anti-gentrification activists who have staged pickets outside the trendy eatery in the Downtown Eastside.
In April, police warned some protesters they could face charges if they commit acts defined as mischief under the Criminal Code.
Anyone with information about Pickell’s whereabouts is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
