Officers from the Saanich Police Detective Section, Street Crime Unit, and Forensic Identification Section still continue to investigate the events related to allegations of unlawful confinement and assault causing bodily harm at a residence in the 3800 block of Tillicum Road.
Investigators have shared that the victim, a 30 year old male, appears to have been held captive between November 22nd and 24th. During that time period, the victim was seriously assaulted and subjected to degrading acts. Furthermore, a bank card belonging to the victim was used multiple times during the time period. The victim was able to free himself and was fortunate to have found uniformed police officers on the property who had attended to investigate another matter.
Initially, there were two people taken into custody and charged with Unlawful Confinement and Assault Causing Bodily Harm. Name Maya MCKAY, a 45 year old female, and James Colin WALKER, a 38 year old male, both remain in custody and are awaiting trial.
