Strange actions prompt citizen’s alert

Mental health patient taken back to Courtnall Centre

A driver flagged down Oak Bay police officers last week to alert them of some strange behaviour.

Just after 9 p.m. on Aug. 15, the driver told officers of a woman dressed in white and wearing a hospital bracelet who was acting erratically at Fort Street and Foul Bay Road.

The officers found her on Foul Bay at Goldsmith Street. When they approached her, she repeatedly shouted, “Don’t take me back there,” then fell to the ground in the fetal position.

The officers arrested her under the Mental Health Act and took the woman to the Archie Courtnall Centre at Royal Jubilee Hospital.
