‘Very brazen’: Dashcam footage sought after daytime robbery in Saanich


Saanich Police are investigating a daytime robbery that occurred in the 1400 block of McKenzie Avenue and are asking for public assistance in identifying suspects.

On Monday, September 11th at around 3:45 p.m., the victim was walking eastbound on the southbound side of McKenzie Avenue and was approached by three men on bicycles. 

They allegedly demanded money and produced a weapon before riding away, heading westbound on McKenzie Avenue towards Cedar Hill Road.

The first suspect was described as roughly 30-years-old, wearing a black vest, blue pants, a red hat with spikes, and had sleeve tattoos on both arms.

The second suspect was also described as roughly 30-years-old, wearing a black t-shirt, blue pants, and a red hat with spikes.

No description was provided for the third suspect.

“While the victim was not physically injured, this was a frightening interaction and very brazen considering it took place in a very busy area,” said Constable Markus Anastasiades.

Police ask anyone driving through the area between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on September 11th to provide dashcam footage.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Saanich Police at 250-475-4321.
