The anti-silverfish bias on this board can be grating.

I was unable to speak during the subsequent several hours of sobbing and wailing.


I literally had to take a mental health day the next day - I’ve suffered many a tragedy in my lifetime - but never needed one as badly as I did on that bleak morning

🚔Multiple VicPD Officers Assaulted In Long Weekend Arrests🚔

Victoria, BC – Multiple officers were assaulted in separate incidents over the long weekend.

🔹Mischief suspect kicks officer

At approximately 11 p.m. on Friday, July 31st, Patrol officers were called to a multi-unit temporary housing facility in the 100-block of Gorge Road East for a report that a violent woman was being verbally and physically aggressive at that location. Officers attended and located the woman, who continued to be verbally aggressive and refused to leave the property. She was arrested.

Once the woman was inside the police vehicle she attacked one of the arresting officers, kicking the officer in the body. The officer, who received non-life-threatening injuries, was able to complete her shift. The woman was transported to cells and faces recommended charges of assaulting a peace officer, mischief, and possession of a controlled substance.

🔹Woman in crisis spits in officer’s face

At approximately 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 1st, Patrol officers responded to a report that a woman was in crisis and causing harm to herself in the 2400-block of Douglas Street.

Officers located the woman and took her into protective custody under the Mental Health Act to transport her to medical care.

While officers were taking the woman into custody, the woman spat in the face of one officer, and struck and spat on another officer. Both officers received non-life-threatening injuries and were able to complete their shift. Due the potential exposure to COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, the officers will be required to conduct medical monitoring and follow-up as required.

The woman was arrested for two counts of assaulting a peace officer and one count of obstructing a peace officer.

🔹Violent man assaults three officers

Shortly before 3 p.m. on Monday, August 3rd, Patrol officers were called to a report of a man using a metal pole to break a bus stop window near the intersection of Quadra Street and Hillside Avenue. Due to the risk to the public and officers, multiple officers attended the scene. As officers moved to arrest the man, he began to fight with them.

The man assaulted three officers before he was taken into custody. During the arrest, oleoresin capsicum spray was deployed, but was ineffective. The man was finally taken into custody with the help of a conducted energy weapon.

The three officers each suffered non-life-threatening injuries. All were able to complete their shifts.

The suspect suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital for assessment. He was seen by a physician and then transported to VicPD cells where he was held for morning court.

The man faces recommended charges of three counts of assaulting a peace officer, resisting arrest, and mischief.

August 4, 2020


Saanich Police Detectives are investigating a series of unprovoked assaults by a man on several people not known to him over the past year in Saanich. We have been successful in identifying the man, in his 30’s, responsible for some of these incidents.

As the investigation is on-going, detectives are still looking for the victims and witnesses from two additional assaults that were reported to police in June this year.

The first occurred on June 12, 2020 between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m at the Esso Gas station at the corner of McKenzie Avenue and Shelbourne Street.

The second also occurred on June 12, 2020 at approximately 11:00 p.m. in the area of Shelbourne Street and Kenmore Road.

In both cases our officers attended the area but were not able to locate any of the victims.

“We believe there are two to three people that were victims of an assault or attempted assault that evening and are hoping they are able to come forward and speak to us. If you were the victim of either of these assaults, we understand that this might be difficult for you however, we are here to support you and will work with you through the process.”

Please contact the Saanich Police Department General Investigation Section at 250-475-4321.

pretty sure it's not that rare for cops to be shoved kicked or spit on.  with "non-life-threatening injuries" such that they still completed their shifts.

 

it's just rare to have press releases about it.

 

prior to about 2017 if a suspect spit on you you'd give her two swift punches to the head in order to assert who has control here.  we got soft thanks to SJWs. 

 

not a single SJW has ever been a cop.

🚔BREAKING: Pellet Gun Seized, Second Investigation Launched In Centennial Square Pellet Gun Shootings🚔

Victoria, BC – Investigators are updating the public on the investigation into a pellet gun shooting that damaged a City Hall office window on July 29th. Detectives with the Investigative Services Division (ISD) have seized a pellet gun suspected to be involved in the shooting. Investigators have also learned of a second pellet gun shooting which caused thousands of dollars in damage to the McPherson Playhouse. Investigators suspect these two incidents are related.

Shortly after 2:45 p.m. on July 29th Patrol officers were called to Victoria’s City Hall at 1 Centennial Square for a report that a staff member had returned to their desk to discover damage to an office window. The damage was consistent with a projectile having been fired at the window from outside. The staff member was not physically injured in the incident.

Officers from VicPD’s Forensic Identification Services (FIS) and Major Crime Unit (MCU) also responded. Evidence at the scene indicated that the window was most likely damaged by a compressed-air style air gun, such as a pellet gun.

During the course of the first investigation, ISD detectives learned of a second pellet gun shooting in Centennial Square. On July 31st, Patrol officers received a report that multiple windows at the McPherson Playhouse, located at 3 Centennial Square, were damaged by a suspected air gun shooting. The damage is believed to have occurred sometime in the week of July 25th. The cost of the damage to the McPherson Playhouse windows is reported to be several thousand dollars. This file remains under investigation and investigators are seeking witnesses with information about this second pellet gun shooting incident.

On Tuesday, August 4th ISD detectives seized a pellet gun suspected to be associated to both of these incidents from a person in Centennial Square. A photograph of the pellet gun is below.

There have been no arrests to-date.

Replica firearms continue to be used in crimes across Victoria and Esquimalt. From January to August of 2020, VicPD attended to 59 files involving replica firearms.

Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who may have information about these incidents. To report what you know, please call (250) 995-7654, and select extension 1 for our report desk. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
