One person in custody after Saanich incident leaves 41-year-old man with ‘life-threatening injuries’

Saanich Police held a steady presence in the 3900-block of Carey Road for much of the weekend

One person is in custody after a Saturday afternoon incident in Saanich that sent a 41-year-old man to hospital with what police are calling “life threatening injuries.”

RELATED: UPDATE: Police continue to investigate Carey Road incident after man sent to hospital with “serious injuries”

In an interview Sunday afternoon, Detective Sergeant Damian Kowalewich of the Saanich Police declined to reveal details about the people involved in the incident that occurred just before 3:30 p.m. in the 3900-block of Carey Road.

He also declined to comment on whether weapons were used in the incident.

Kowalewich said the investigation is in the hands of the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) remains in its early stages.

Officers are working around the clock at two locations — a house in the 3900-block of Carey Road and a second residence on Granderson Road in Langford.

Kowalewich said a “nexus” exists between those two locations as investigators believe the individuals involved in the incident knew each other, adding the public is not at risk.

Kowalewich said investigators are hoping for witnesses to come forward, especially anyone who was travelling on the BC Transit bus No. 30 on Carey Road at about 3:15 p.m. Saturday.

Police arrived at the scene on Carey Road at 3:18 p.m. Saturday afternoon and have had an active presence since.

The K-9 unit present for part of the investigation, shut the block down until late Saturday night, and five houses in the area remained cordoned off as of Sunday afternoon.

Debris that appeared to be the remnants of medical assistance appeared strewn across the driveway of a home.
