Victoria police are investigating an attempted robbery at knife-point on Sunday night.
At approximately 10:15 p.m. Nov. 1, officers and the police dog team were called to a report of a robbery in the 1000-block of Craigdarroch Road.
Two women told police they were walking on the sidewalk in that area when they were approached by a man holding a knife.
The man held the knife up and demanded the women put their purses in his open backpack.
The women screamed loudly and the man fled the area on foot, running north on Criagdarroch Road. He did not take any of the women’s belongings.
The suspect is described as a 20-year-old Caucasian man, standing 5’9” with a slim build, dark hair and was wearing a blue medical mask, a black jacket with the hood up and blue jeans. He was carrying a small black backpack.
Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD’s non-emergency line at 250-995-7654.
