A Victoria bylaw officer was quick to call police Tuesday morning after a man reportedly smashed a sledgehammer into the city truck they were seated inside.
When police arrived at 10:20 a.m., the man had already fled on a bike into Beacon Hill Park, but officers were able to locate and arrest him a short time later without incident. There were no injuries and the man was released with a court date.
Anyone with information can contact the VicPD report desk at 250-995-7654, extension 1, or report anonymously to Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Editor’s Note: In its original statement, VicPD stated that the vehicle was a bylaw truck. It was, in fact, a parks truck.
