A 46-year old man remains behind bars after he allegedly rammed his vehicle into a car belonging to his ex-girlfriend in Victoria on Tuesday evening.
Police were called to the 1000-block of Gillespie Place where a 2-vehicle collision had taken place. One of the vehicles was severely damaged.
Investigators believe the driver intentionally drove his car into the vehicle in an attempt to harm two occupants he thought were inside the car, although the two were not in the vehicle at the time of the collision.
One person involved suffered non-life threatening injuries in the incident, but police would not confirm who was injured.
Police say the accused and the victim have a long history of domestic violence. There are reports it was the man’s ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend he tried to harm.
Sebastian Normandin is charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
He remains in custody, and his next court appearance is on January 4th.
Police will not release any more details as the matter is now before the courts.
Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information is asked to call the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
