Victoria police hunt for robbery suspects

Two men robbed in two separate unrelated cases in Victoria

Victoria police officers are on the lookout for four thieves after two men were recently robbed in two separate unrelated cases.

Three men robbed a 27-year-old Colwood man at knifepoint near Rainbow Park in the 200-block of Robert St. in Vic West last Thursday.

One robber allegedly wielded a large knife and demanded the victim hand over his backpack, while two more suspects circled around their target to block his escape, said Victoria police Const. Mike Russell.

They are described as white males, between 23 and 27 years old, about six-feet tall and were wearing black toques.

On Sunday night at 11 p.m. a 19-year-old Saanich man was standing at a bus stop with a friend near Tillicum and Craigflower roads, when he was allegedly robbed.

A male suspect “struck up a conversation and then threatened the man with violence unless he surrendered his iPod and headphones,” Russell said.

The suspect is described as a native male, between 18 and 23 years old, six-foot-two with a slim build, brown eyes and is clean shaven. He was wearing a brown hooded sweater and grey sweatpants.
