VicPD Cruiser Downtown

VicPD is investigating after officers broke up a large fight involving skateboards and bear spray in downtown Victoria Tuesday evening.

Officers were called to Reeson Park in the 1300-block of Wharf Street just after 6 p.m. on October 6 for a report of a group of young men fighting.

The report said some of the youth and young adults were armed with skateboards and bear spray.

When police arrived the group scattered, but officers were able to locate two of the main participants.

Both young men had non-life-threatening injuries and were treated on scene by paramedics. Neither of the two participants would provide statements as to what had occurred.

VicPD said that video of the fight had appeared online but they had not yet seen it. Officers are asking that anyone with video of the incident or any other information contact the non-emergency line at (250) 995-7654, extension 1.

Those who wish to report information anonymously can call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
