Report of woman approached, cut on Christmas Hill

On Wednesday at just after 2 p.m., Saanich Police responded to a report of an assault in the area of Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary.

Saanich Police are investigating the report of an assault in Christmas Hill from Wednesday afternoon at just after 2 p.m.

Police responded to a report of an assault in the area of Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary. The investigation is still unclear in some circumstances and is considered to be in its early stages.

It appears as if a woman was on a walk in the park when she was approached by someone.  The woman received a cut to her upper body and ran to her car and called the police.

It is unknown, at this time, if the victim and suspect knew each other and the victim has been unable to provide any suspect description at the moment.

The victim was treated at the scene by the B.C. Ambulance Service and transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

“At this time we are still collecting a statement from the victim and canvassing the area for witnesses,” said actin Sgt. Jereme Leslie.  “We have a number of resources involved in the investigation including officers from our patrol division, canine section, and the forensic identification section.”

If you anyone witnessed anything in the area at around 2 p.m. and are able to help, they are asked to call Saanich Police at 250-475-4321.
