Lone Man Attacked in Chemainus
North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are searching for two men after an attack on another man in Chemainus.
A man was walking down Victoria Road on July 12th around 5:30pm when two men exited their older black vehicle and began to verbally attack the 45 year old Chemainus man. Within moments, the verbal attack turned physical, resulting in injuries to his face and chest, due to repeated blows from the attackers.
Corporal Krista Hobday says the victim’s injuries are not life threatening.
The suspect that was behind the wheel is described as a white man with medium complexion, between 18 and 22 years old, and about 5’10 and 200 pounds. He has blonde hair and a full bushy blond beard. He was wearing a black hat, a faded blue shirt and possibly jeans.
The suspect in the passenger seat is described as a white man with medium complexion, between 16 and 20 years old, and around 5’6 and 150 pounds. He had a clean shaven head and face, and was possibly wearing a blue coat. This suspect also had a small black bat.
The suspect vehicle looked like a late 90’s to early 2000’s black truck – possibly a Chevy Blazer. The vehicle was dusty with a loud muffler.
