A Victoria woman confronted a six-foot-tall man attempting to break into her suite Wednesday (July 29) night.
According to the Victoria Police Department, an unknown man attempted to open the woman’s locked patio door to a ground level suite in the 700-block of Tyee Road. When she confronted him though the door, he attempted to open an adjacent door to her suite, which was secured.
He then tried to get into a neighbouring unit by attempting to open their locked patio door.
The man left before police arrived. He is described as a Caucasian man in his mid 30s wearing a black hoodie and burgundy hat with a white symbol on it.
“This incident serves as a reminder to properly secure doors and windows, despite summer weather when entryways can often be left open,” police said in a news release. The incident remains under investigation.
