An assault on a youth and an intervening witness in downtown Victoria last week has police turning to the public for information.
Shortly after 9 p.m. May 10, officers were called to the 1300-block of Wharf Street for a report of at least four people physically fighting. Upon arriving, they found a youth had been assaulted and was suffering from non-life-threatening injuries. The suspects had already left the area.
After reviewing video surveillance, police found the youth had been assaulted by at least two people before a passerby attempted to intervene. That man was then kicked, punched and struck with a skateboard. He left the scene and hasn’t contacted police since.
Now, police are asking anyone with information about the incident – especially the man who intervened – to contact them. Information can be reported to the VicPD report desk at 250-995-7654, ext. 1, or anonymously to Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
