On October 23rd, 2019, the West Shore RCMP received a report of a break and enter and sexual assault that had taken place at a residence near the intersection of Sooke Rd and Metchosin Rd in Colwood.
This investigation is in its very early stages.
The victim of the crime was an adult female who was assaulted by an unknown male suspect. At this time police do not have a suspect description to share with the public.
The West Shore RCMP Major Crime Unit is leading the investigation. A team of investigators canvassed the neighbourhood yesterday along with the Police Dog Service.
“You may see our officers in the area continuing the investigation,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar, Media Relations Officer, West Shore RCMP. “The suspect is unknown to [the] police and when we have more information to share with the public we will be sure to provide an update. We want to remind everyone to take the regular safety precautions of locking your doors regardless of whether you are home or not, and report any suspicious activity immediately.”
