One man faces mischief and attempted assault charges after punching in the windows of a car during an alcohol-fuelled argument late Saturday night.

Saanich police were called to Kenmore Road and Shelbourne Street at 11:30 p.m. after four intoxicated pedestrians got into an argument with a passing motorist.

Sgt. Scott Treble says one of the pedestrians “became enraged and he punched out and broke the driver’s window and the passenger side window. He tried to punch the passenger but was unsuccessful.”

A canine unit was brought it and the dog quickly tracked three of the four men to Majestic Park. Police arrested a 22-year-old man, matching the description of the suspect. He was released Sunday morning and will appear in court in late May.
