Driver attacked by three men with skateboards in downtown Victoria

Langford couple and friend said to be traumatized after honking at jaywalkers

Three men attacked a vehicle with their skateboards Friday night, smashing its windows and threatening the occupants inside.

At 10:30 p.m., a Langford couple and a friend were driving eastbound on Fort Street near Douglas Street.

The driver honked at three men walking in the middle of the street before coming to a stop at the intersection.

The vehicle was then attacked by three men, who uttered threats and used their skateboards to smash out a rear window of the Kia SUV.

Damage to the vehicle is estimated to be several thousand dollars.

A 22-year-old man was apprehended by a witness, while a second 22-year-old man was picked up by a Victoria Police motorcycle officer.

A third man remains at large, but police are reviewing video surveillance in the area in an attempt to identify him.
