VicPD seek specific skateboarder

Victoria Police know who they're looking for after a skateboarder sent two tourists to hospital last week.

Last Tuesday around 2:30 p.m. a 57-year-old Coquitlam woman and her husband were hit by an errant skateboarder on the sidewalk near the intersection of Government and View streets. The visitors suffered serious injuries and were treated at the hospital, police said.

After numerous tips and media attention, VicPD identified a 20-year-old Saanich man as suspect in the collision and are looking to serve him with violation tickets. Investigation continues into whether to recommend criminal charges.

Any witnesses who can identify the man are asked to contact Const. Rob Horne at 250-995-7654 ext. 5917.
