VicPD arrested a man after a crime spree where he attempted two carjackings while armed with a knife.

He also tried to steal a scooter, and attempted two separate break and enters.

On July 15th, at around 10 a.m., a man reportedly broke into a suite of a multi-unit residential building in the 1800-block of Fern Street and stole several items.

Responding officers received additional reports that the same man, now in the 1500-block of Pandora Avenue, attempted to enter an occupied vehicle while armed with a knife.

The victim of the attempted carjacking stopped the suspect from entering their vehicle and then locked their doors.

The suspect was unable to enter the vehicle and then attempted to steal a nearby scooter. A witness interrupted the theft attempt, and the suspect fled the area.

Following this, the suspect broke into another suite in a multi-unit residential building in the 1300-block of Stanley Avenue. Officers located the suspect as he departed the building and advised him that he was under arrest.

He then attempted to break into a separate ground floor suite in the same building from which he had just departed.

Officers arrested the man and transported him to VicPD cells where he was held in custody.

No one was injured in the attacks.

The 33-year-old Victoria man faces recommended charges of robbery with a weapon, assault with a weapon, and break and enter.

The suspect was on conditions of an undertaking not to possess weapons after recently assaulting a police officer. The suspect also faces recommended charges of breach of an undertaking.
