A 58-year-old man from Cowichan Bay suffered serious, life-threatening injuries after he confronted two men he saw urinating off Pier 66.
The incident happened Monday night around 10.
North Cowichan Duncan RCMP say the victim confronted two men, a 41-year-old from Cowichan Bay and a 49-year-old from Sidney for allegedly urinating off the pier.
That’s when a fight broke out and the victim struck his head after one of the men hit him.
Both men were arrested at the scene for assault causing bodily harm.
North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP say they have interviewed a number of witnesses and received cell phone video from one witness but they are looking for anyone else who may have information.
The victim remains in critical condition.
A Go-Fund-Me page has been set up for the victim’s wife, to cover costs associated with food and expenses associated with gas, vehicle maintenance, and parking.
