UPDATED: Police nab both suspects of Oak Bay armed robbery

Perpetrators were arrested for allegedly using a firearm to rob Oak Bay Avenue resident

Both suspects involved in an armed robbery in Oak Bay on Aug. 14 have now been arrested.

“We identified the second suspect and contacted the Sidney-North Saanich RCMP who subsequently arrested him without incident. He is well known to police,” said Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.

The incident occurred when two suspects, both men, allegedly entered an apartment in the 2000-block of Oak Bay Avenue in an attempt to sell the occupant some items.

When the occupant was not interested one of the suspects pulled out what appeared to be a 9 mm handgun. Various items were stolen along with a credit and debit card. The suspect with the gun stayed behind while the other suspect went to an ATM to withdraw money.

The two men both face varying charges that include possessing a restricted weapon while prohibited from doing so, committing robbery while using firearm, uttering threats, theft (bank card) and failure to comply with condition on undertaking.

The second arrest on Tuesday was without incident after Oak Bay Police alerted Sidney-North Saanich RCMP with the believed location.
