Victoria Police officers and Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team Crisis Negotiators are working to extricate suspects believed to be barricaded inside a Cook Street apartment.
Police initially arrived at the multi-unit residential building in the 2300-block of Cook Street for reports of a robbery at around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Upon arrival, they learned that one man was assaulted with a weapon during the robbery. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment.
Police believe that suspects in the robbery are currently barricaded inside a suite in the building.
GVERT Crisis Negotiators are now working to safely take them into custody.
More to come.
