Offshore fight with frying pan

A frying pan was one of several weapons of choice during a domestic dispute this week

A frying pan was one of several weapons of choice during a domestic dispute July 3.

The couple had been on the man’s boat in Tod Inlet when the woman allegedly began throwing dishes at him. She then hit the man in the head with a frying pan and stabbed him in the right thigh with a small kitchen knife.

The pair then rowed a small boat to the marina at the end of Benvenuto Avenue. RCMP and Central Saanich police responded and found the woman hiding in the bushes.

On the way to the scene, one Sidney North Saanich RCMP officer swerved the police cruiser to avoid a deer on Keating X Road and struck a power pole. The officer sustained minor injuries and B.C. Hydro attended to repair the damage to the pole.
