Evidence collected during the course of this investigation has led police to determine that this was an isolated incident and that there is no threat to the public in relation to this assault, RCMP said in a March 3 news release.

Staff Sergeant Wayne Conley of the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP praised the work done by officers.

“There is still work to be done to ensure all available evidence related to this crime is processed and delivered to the Courts but we would like Sidney residents to know this was not a random act and that the man responsible has been arrested,” Conley said in a news release.

This investigation is ongoing and police will provide no further details.
