West Shore RCMP are investigating an attempted robbery that occurred in Langford early Sunday.

The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 21st.

In a media release, police said a man was approached by two suspects while walking along the east side of Veterans Memorial Parkway between Percy Place and Larkhall Road.

The victim told police one of the suspects brandished a handgun and demanded cash. The individual didn’t have money on him so the suspect left on foot and was seen heading towards the Chevron Gas Station.

The victim was uninjured in the incident.

Suspect one is described as:

  • Caucasian male;
  • early 20’s;
  • approximately 5’8 to 5’10 tall;
  • blue eyes;
  • wearing a face mask
  • had a tattoo under the right eye that appeared to continue from below the eye and onto the neck.
  • The tattoo was described as having sharp edges and lines, possibly a tribal-style tattoo.

The second suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male;
  • early 20’s;
  • approx. 5’8″ to 5’10” tall;
  • wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, a black medical mask, and black sneakers.

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying these suspects.

Police are asking residents living in the area with home surveillance or anyone who may have been driving by that has dash camera footage to check it between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. on Feb 21st.

“We have had no similar reports of this nature. This incident was not immediately reported to police and we would like to remind the public to report criminal and suspicious activity right away,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer.
