–Sooke RCMP report
On January 4th, 2018 at 1428 hours, a member of the Sooke RCMP responded to numerous complaints in the 5200 block of Sooke Road.
A male was reported to be standing in the middle of the road blocking traffic and behaving irrationally.
On seeing the arrival of the first police officer the suspect became hostile, refused to identify himself, and after a brief interaction he ran away, down the highway and into a residence.
The officer followed the subject to the home, at which point he came outside with a glass of wine stating that he would not be arrested.
The officer arrested the subject after which the subject became violent, attacking her and trying to bite her face and head area. The officer was able to fight him off until other officers arrived.
Charges are presently being considered against the male. Alcohol consumption and mental health issues are considered contributing factors in this incident.
