A man who allegedly ‘randomly’ assaulted a woman in the 2900-block of Douglas Street has been arrested by the Victoria Police Department.

The 29-year-old woman suffered non-life threatening injuries after a man shoved her to the ground while passing her on the sidewalk on the morning of June 13 around 11 a.m.

Police say an officer was driving along the 800-block of Caledonia Avenue just after 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, when a man waved him down and was identified as the suspect in the assault. He was arrested without incident and taken to their detachment.

The man was released on a notice to appear in court at a later date.
