Two assaulted on Canada Day

Two incidents on Central Saanich buses saw police respond on Canada Day

Two incidents on Central Saanich buses saw police respond on Canada Day, July 1.

In the first incident, a young man got off the bus around 11:15 p.m. followed by a group of teens. He was walking down Mount Newton X Road when he was attacked by four teens. He was pushed into a ditch and punched.

Police patrolled the surrounding areas but were not able to locate the group of teens.

Just before midnight, another man was pushed to the ground, punched and kicked after getting off the bus.

A suspect fled on foot but with help from witnesses the police arrested a 19-year-old Central Saanich man. He was charged with assault causing bodily harm and was released on a promise to appear in court.
