If you heard the sound of police sirens early this morning, the Oak Bay Police assisted Saanich and Victoria Police who were responding to a car prowler in the 1900 block of Watson Street (just south of Landsdowne Camosun College). A Saanich resident heard his car alarm go off and went outside to see what caused the activation. Once outside the resident confronted a male who pepper sprayed him during the physical exchange.
With the assistance of a police canine unit, the area was searched with negative results.
The Saanich resident was transported to the hosipital.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 40’s with brown hair.
