Victoria, BC – Investigators are looking for witnesses with video to come forward after a suspect was arrested for assault and mischief downtown.
Shortly after 8 a.m. on May 24, officers responded to a report of a disturbance in the 1200-block of Douglas Street. Officers determined that the suspect had assaulted a passerby and smashed the window of a vehicle that was stopped in traffic.
