Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are continuing their investigation after an incident on Dallas Road early this morning that led to a police search in Colwood.

Shortly after 4 a.m. Patrol officers were called to the area of Dallas Road and Linden Avenue for a report that a man attempted to ram a woman and her two friends with his vehicle while they were on foot in that area. The suspect then reportedly exited his vehicle and attempted to assault one of the individuals with a weapon, narrowly missing. The suspect then fled the scene in his vehicle. No one was physically injured in the incident.

The suspect was later spotted in a Colwood neighbourhood at approximately 5 a.m. and a search was undertaken by the Westshore RCMP. However, the suspect was not located.

The suspect is known to police and VicPD officers are continuing their search today. Investigators believe this to be an isolated incident, as the suspect and one of the victims were known to each other, and they do not believe that there is a risk to wider public safety.

This file remains under investigation.
