Oak Bay Police are seeking the public’s help to identify stakeholders involved in a physical altercation on the front porch of a residence on Hall Road last week.
At around 8:30 a.m. on November 3, an 85-year-old man knocked on his front door, thinking it was the morning paper deliverer. After opening the door, he met a strange woman who said “I’m in”.
The man protested and a fight ensued. The woman shoved the man, but was stopped by a neighbor who came to rescue him after hearing the commotion.
The woman fled on foot and was chased a short distance by neighbors, according to police. She was last seen on Beach Boulevard, heading towards Foul Bay Road. Neighbors took pictures of the woman before returning to check on the man and calling the police.
While the man managed to escape without any major injuries, police said he was visibly shaken. Police patrolled the area extensively but were unable to locate the woman. Police have not yet identified her.
The woman is described as 20 to 25 years old, 5ft 6in, Caucasian or possibly Asian, with dark brown hair and a medium build. At the time of the crime, she was wearing a black jacket, a long black dress, white ankle socks with ruffles, a white T-shirt, black leather shoes and a yellow hat.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424 or Crime Stoppers Greater Victoria at 1-800-222-8477.
