Victoria recently saw three people pricked by hypodermic needles in the span of a week.
One of those incidents was found to be a case of someone injecting themselves for medical purposes, one saw a woman pricked while brushing a paper bag containing a needle out of her dog’s mouth. In the third case, a woman was pricked by a needle placed sharp-side up in a planter, then found another needle in a similar spot a week later, likely put there by someone with malicious intent.
We’d like to hear whether or not these cases have you more fearful in general about being in the city, and encourage you to take part in our web poll.
