Cyclists assaulted and robbed in Langford Sunday

RCMP are asking anyone who witnessed an assault and bicycle theft on Atkins Avenue at 10:45 p.m Sunday to come forward.

RCMP are asking anyone who witnessed an assault and bicycle theft on Atkins Avenue at 10:45 p.m Sunday to come forward.

On Aug. 19, three men in their early 20s left a house on Atkins Avenue and approached two cyclists, also in their early 20s.

“The three males bumped into the victims on the bikes and a fight incurred,” Sgt. Max Fossum of West Shore RCMP said. “One victim was punched in the face.”

During the altercation the men allegedly stole a Norco Sasquatch bicycle from one of the cyclists.

Later in the evening, one of the cyclists returned to Atkins Avenue home to try and get the bike back.

He was allegedly assaulted again and left without the bike.

“It was a bit naive to think he could get his bike back,” Fossum said.

“The correct thing to do would have been to call police to investigate.”

RCMP received vague descriptions of two of the suspects.

When police went to the home where the incidents allegedly took place, they did not find the bike reported stolen and did not make an arrest.

RCMP ask anyone with information on this incident to contact the detachment at 250-474-2264.
