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.
