A woman suffered “non-life-threatening injuries” after being physically assaulted in on Douglas Street on Saturday morning and Victoria police are asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect.

At approximately 11 a.m. on Jun 13, VicPD says a 29-year-old woman was the victim of a “random, unprovoked assault” in the 2900-block of Douglas Street. In surveillance footage of the incident shared by police, the male suspect appears to shove the woman to the ground while passing her on the sidewalk.

In photos shared by police, the suspect can be seen walking down the street wearing white headphones, a purple t-shirt, a dark coloured jacket and shorts, white socks and grey sneakers.

Anyone who sees the man is asked to call 911. Those with information about the suspect are asked to contact the VicPD by calling the non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 and pressing one. To make an anonymous report, contact Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
