The Sidney/North Saanich RCMP is seeking information about a man who reportedly tried to open the doors of several homes before trying to hit police with a vehicle on Wednesday morning.

RCMP received several calls on the morning of Aug. 25 about a man who was trying to open doors in the areas near both Lands End Road and Tsaykum Road. Police said upon finding the man, he allegedly tried to “ram police” while driving a stolen vehicle.

The man then fled in the stolen vehicle that was later found abandoned nearby. RCMP said a second vehicle was reported stolen nearby before it was found in the Nanaimo area. Police are asking the public to check video surveillance systems between midnight and 5 a.m. on Aug. 25 and to come forward if they have any information.

Police believe he is a North Saanich resident and described him as Caucasian and around the age of 50. He’s 5’8”, weighs about 170 pounds, and has unkempt blond hair. He was wearing a blue T-shirt and blue jeans.

Nobody was injured in any of the incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP at 250-656-3931.
