West Shore RCMP are searching for a teenager who beat up and robbed a 17-year-old boy along with two accomplices back in May.
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.
Since the incident, police have arrested two of the three suspects, and are now seeking public assistance in finding the third individual.
The outstanding suspect is described as a Caucasian male between 14-17 years old who has dark, shaggy hair.
At the time of the incident, he was wearing grey skinny jeans and a white t-shirt, which he later removed.
He was also wearing a dark burgundy coloured baseball cap and back pack, and was last seen walking away near the McDonald’s on Langford Parkway.
“This is a disturbing crime. The victim was taken to the hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar.
“We have released the surveillance photos of the 3rd suspect in hopes that someone will recognize this person and notify police of their identity. If you know who this is please come forward and speak to the police.”
Anyone who recognizes the suspect can reach out to West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
