Wanted man surrenders to Victoria police

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Marc William Bauer.

A man wanted for allegedly threatening to kill a pregnant woman in early May and a police officer in January turned himself in at the Victoria Law Courts Monday afternoon.

Victoria police issued a public advisory last week about Marc William Bauer, 39, after they say the Greater Victoria resident evaded police custody. A warrant for his arrest was issued May 15.

Before he surrendered to police around 1:30 p.m., investigators had expressed concern that Bauer was showing signs of escalating violent behaviour that, combined with a severe alcohol addiction, make him “unpredictable and violent,” police spokesperson Mike Tucker said.

Bauer also faces charges related to uttering death threats to a Victoria police officer in January, a case that is now moving through the court system.

“VicPD wish to thank the public and media for their assistance in getting Bauer back in police custody,” Tucker said.
