According to police, the suspects are between the ages of 14 and 17 and are alleged to have taken turns assaulting the 17-year-old victim by beating him with a baton. They then robbed him of his personal items including a wallet before leaving.

Const. Nancy Saggar of West Shore RCMP said the victim was taken to hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.

Police said the victim knew one of the youths personally and provided his identity to police who arrested a 15-year-old suspect right away.

On Wednesday, police said they have since arrested another suspect and are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the third one.

The outstanding suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 14 to 17 years old with dark, shaggy hair. He was wearing skinny jeans and a white t-shirt which was later removed. He was wearing a dark burgundy coloured baseball cap and backpack and was last seen walking away near the McDonald’s on Langford Parkway.

“This is a disturbing crime,” Saggar said. “We have released the surveillance photos of the third suspect in hopes that someone will recognize this person and notify the police of their identity. If you know who this is please come forward and speak to the police.”

Anyone with information can call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
