Saanich woman faces assault, mischief charges after police officer kicked in groin

After arrest, woman kicked Plexiglas partition so hard it damaged police cruiser: Saanich police

A Saanich woman is facing numerous charges after two Saanich Police officers were assaulted and a patrol car damaged early this morning.

Shortly after 2 a.m., police were called to a home in the 3200-block of Shelley St. to a “verbal and physical disturbance” between two young women, one who was heavily intoxicated, said Sgt. Scott Treble.

“One of the women left the home and was arrested out on the street for being intoxicated in a public place,” he said. “While being driven back to the police station in the secure back seat area of the police car, she began kicking the Plexiglas partition so hard that it broke a piece out and damaged the whole divider.”

While being moved and secured in another police vehicle, the woman spat into the hair and face of the arresting officer, Treble said.

“After arriving at the Saanich Police station, the woman kicked the same officer in the thigh. She kicked a second officer in the groin a short time later,” he added.

The woman was held overnight in police cells and was released early this afternoon after sobering up.

Police are recommending charges of assaulting two police officers, along with a mischief charge for the police car damage.

A 22-year-old Saanich woman is expected to appear in Victoria Law Courts in early August.
