West Shore RCMP are looking for 25-year-old Victoria resident Patrick O’Neil who witnesses say threatened a Good Samaritan with a knife.
At around 12:50 p.m. Sunday, police received reports of a domestic incident taking place in the 1500 block of Admirals Road in View Royal.
Witnesses told police they saw a man yelling at a woman and then a Good Samaritan intervened. O’Neil allegedly pulled a knife and told the man to back off and then began to chase him.
The suspect fled before officers arrived, but RCMP say the man is known to them.
All witnesses and the woman involved are cooperating with Police.
A warrant has been issued for O’Neil. He is described as white, five-foot-six and 140 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.
West Shore RCMP ask anyone with information to call them at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
