West Shore RCMP release photo of man violently striking vehicles with large bike chains


West Shore RCMP have released a photo of a man they say caused thoughts of dollars in damage to at least two vehicles.

On November 4th, at about 1:30 p.m., a driver was delivering packages near the 2300-block of Francis Drive in View Royal when a man carrying large bike chains struck the hood of his delivery truck.

Police said the suspect continued walking on foot and struck another vehicle that was stopped on Watkiss Way and Burnside Road.

The suspect struck the vehicle once using the bike chains, and then fled down the Galloping Goose Trail.

The damage to both vehicles is estimated to be over $5,000, according to police.

The suspect is described as Caucasian man in his 30s, standing about 5’9″ tall, light brown hair, slim build, wearing a baggy brown hoodie, baggy jeans, black running shoes.

“The drivers of both vehicles were uninjured but the vehicles themselves did sustain damage. We don’t know what the motivations of the suspect were or why he was acting in such a manner,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar West Shore RCMP, Media Relations Officer.

Anyone who can identify this suspect is asked to call the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
