Coquitlam RCMP are looking for victims and witnesses in relation to a sexual misconduct case against a teacher. Lamar Victor Alviar, a North Vancouver music teacher, has been arrested after a series of allegations of sexual misconduct involving underage girls in Coquitlam.
“Lamar Victor Alviar has been teaching music out of a North Vancouver business called ‘LA Music Studio.’ There is reason to believe he has had inappropriate contact with young people around Metro Vancouver,” says Corporal Michael McLaughlin with Coquitlam RCMP.
“The allegations involving Alviar include both students and non-students. Police believe there is a strong likelihood that there are victims and witnesses who have not yet spoken to police”.
Alviar is described as:
- A 22-year-old man
- Dark brown hair with hazel eyes
- An eyebrow piercing
- 173 cm (5′ 8”) and 68 kg (150 lbs)
- Slim build
Furthermore, Alviar is being released on conditions including:
- Not to be alone with anyone who reasonably appears to be under the age of 16,
- No contact or communication with anyone who appears to be under the age of 16 (including via the internet or social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Instagram or Snapchat).
