Victoria, BC – A man who swung a baseball bat at multiple people and damaged property at a multi-unit residential building on Monday afternoon has been identified.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m. on Monday, November 2nd, Patrol officers were called to a multi-unit residential building in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue for a report of a man with a weapon. A witness reported that a man had attempted to enter a secure courtyard area of the building. When a resident confronted the man, he became irate and began swinging a baseball bat at residents of the building. The suspect then hit the building multiple times with the baseball bat, and then threw the bat at another person, striking them, before leaving the scene. The person struck with the bat did not report any physical injuries.

Yesterday, we asked for public assistance in identifying the suspect in this investigation. Thanks to a number of tips from members of our community and partner agencies, the suspect has been identified. A warrant will be sought for his arrest.

Investigators would like to thank members of our community who provided information to identify the suspect.
