Police continue to seek to speak with any witnesses after a 70-year-old man was struck on Oak Bay Avenue and Hampshire Road on Dec. 26. The pedestrian received a broken right leg and sustained a head injury after a driver westbound hit him with a vehicle. The driver remained at the scene of the accident and cooperated fully with police.

Police continue to investigate a Dec. 28, 2019 residential break and enter in the 2000-block of Beach Drive.

That same day, a manager at Fairway Market called police to report that an unknown person broke into and stole four bags of bottles from their secured cage out back in the 2100-block of Oak Bay Avenue. A review of surveillance video shows a male suspect on a mountain bike wearing a back pack and hoodie at 3:40 a.m. that day.
