Teens spotted jumping on car

The parents of three teenagers were forced to leave their beds in the middle of the night

The parents of three teenagers were forced to leave their beds in the middle of the night after being summoned to the Oak Bay Police Department on Saturday.

Police took three 16-year-old males, two from Oak Bay and the third from Victoria, into custody after a resident spotted three youths jumping on the hood of neighbour’s car and kicking off an exterior mirror in the 2300-block of Bowker Ave.

The suspects, two of whom are well known to police, were arrested nearby. Their parents were called to retrieve their kids around 3 a.m.

“We’re still trying to determine how many vehicles were damaged,” said Deputy Chief of Police Kent Thom, adding it was later learned that two more vehicles also had their mirrors kicked off.

Once the extent of the damaged vehicles is known, the case will be referred through the restorative justice program.
