Two separate investigations into an assault with a weapon at the same multi-unit residential facility resulted in a significant police presence in the area of Gorge Road East on Monday. 

At approximately 2:30 a.m. on Monday, April 25th, officers responded to a report of a victim of an assault with a weapon at a multi-unit residential building in the 200-block of Gorge Road East. 

The victim was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Officers identified another person involved in the incident, locating him a short time later at the scene. He was also transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries sustained during the incident. 

Both individuals involved received medical care and were later arrested and released pending further investigation. 

Officers remained on scene throughout the day to execute a search warrant on the suite involved in the assault incident.

At the same time, VicPD officers and the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team  conducted a firearms investigation at a separate suite in the same building. 

Officers remained on scene for much of the day during the execution of the search warrant. 

Anyone with information about either of the two incidents is asked to call the VicPD at (250) 995-7654.
