In a disturbingly violent incident, a 17-year-old boy was beaten up and robbed by three teenagers in Langford.
On Thursday May 30th, West Shore RCMP were called to the scene of an assault that took place behind The Brick store located at 2945 Jacklin Rd in Langford.
Three teenagers aged between 14-17 years old allegedly took turns beating up the 17-year-old victim with a baton.
They then proceeded to rob him of his personal items including a wallet before leaving the scene.
The victim was taken to the hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.
The victim personally knew one of the suspects – a 15-year-old boy – who was then arrested right away. Police are still looking for the other two suspects.
The first suspect is described as a Caucasian male between 14-17 years old, standing 5’6″ – 5’7″ tall and has a heavier build.
He has blond hair and at the time of the incident was wearing possibly red shorts, a red hat, and white shoes, and was last seen walking away near the McDonald’s on Langford Parkway.
The second suspect is described as a darker-skinned male between 14-17 years old, is tall and skinny and has dark, shaggy hair.
At the time of the incident, he was wearing grey skinny jeans, black shoes and no shirt.
“This is a disturbing crime,” says West Shore RCMP spokesperson Cst Nancy Saggar.
“We are asking for any witnesses who may have seen this to please come forward and speak to the police. Further if you can identify the other two suspects please report it to us.”
