Investigation into Unprovoked Assault 20-16149

July 21, 2020


On July 20, 2020, just before 10:20 p.m. a woman was sitting on the beach in Cadboro Bay (Gyro Beach) when an unknown man walked up to her, punched her in the face and then ran off toward Telegraph Bay Road.


The man was described as wearing a dark coloured sweater, blue jeans and running shoes.


“It was dark out and the incident happened very quickly. It was shocking to learn that this assault was unprovoked, and we’re working every angle to identify the suspect and then determine what the motive was.”


As we continue our investigation, we are asking anyone who may have been in the area and seen this incident or suspect to contact us either directly at 250-475-4321 or through Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Further to this, we’re asking any residents in the area of Tudor Avenue and Telegraph Bay Road / Cadboro Bay Road to check their home CCTV for any footage.
