VicPD are asking witnesses to come forward after a woman was attacked by three men in Victoria last weekend.
Officers were called to the area of Vancouver Street and Pandora Avenue just before 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 27th, for a report of an assault.
When police arrived they located a woman with non-life-threatening injuries.
The woman told the officers that she had been driving her vehicle on Johnson Street near Pandora Avenue when three men crossed in front of her vehicle, despite her having the right-of-way with a green light.
She stopped her vehicle to avoid a collision and honked her horn. The men then began to kick and spit on her vehicle. One of them also grabbed a nearby traffic pylon and struck the woman’s vehicle, damaging it.
The men then began to walk away. The woman parked her car nearby to survey the damage and asked the men why they had attacked her vehicle. The men then attacked the woman.
The woman reported being kicked and punched several times and was struck with the traffic pylon as well. The men then fled at the sound of approaching sirens.
Police say nearby witnesses to the assault stayed with the woman until officers arrived. She was taken to hospital by paramedics.
VicPD are still investigating and are asking witnesses and those with video of the incident to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at (250) 995-7654 ext 1.
Those who wish to report information anonymously can call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
