14-year-old faces assault, weapons charges after Langford knife incident

A 14-year-old boy is due to appear in court early next year charged with several weapons charges related to a knife incident in October.

RCMP arrested a teenage suspect in an investigation that began on Oct. 23 when West Coast officials received reports of threats to kill at a McDonald’s restaurant in Langford.

The teenage suspect was on a Sooke-bound bus before officers arrived, West Coast RCMP said in a statement.

Sooke RCMP stopped the bus, arrested a suspect and seized a knife.

In November, two more people told Sooke RCMP that the suspect brandished a knife and made death threats on a BC Transit bus on Oct. 23.

The youth suspect was arrested again and now faces multiple charges, including two counts of assault with a weapon, one count of possession of a concealed weapon and one count of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The suspect’s conditions include not having any contact with the victim, not going to McDonald’s or any BC Transit buses or property, and not possessing any weapons including knives. He is due to appear in court in early January 2023.
