On Thursday May 6th, 2021 at 2:45 pm Saanich Police received a call about an assault involving a knife that had just taken place inside a business at Saanich Plaza at 3995 Quadra Street.
One person was injured as a result of an assault with a knife. The suspect left the store but was located by one of our Bike Patrol officers not far from the plaza. They were taken into custody without incident, where it was discovered that they too had sustained minor injuries from the incident inside the business.
The victim and suspect were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening. Our officers remain on scene at the plaza to gather evidence, speak to witnesses and continue with their investigation.
“Both involved were known to one another, are youth under the age of 16, and there is no risk to the public.”
