Oak Bay Police are investigating a 25 year old man who is in custody for robbery with violence, break and enter and breach of probation.
Police were called around 7:15 this morning (March 23) for a report of a man attacking a woman and attempting to steal her car in the 200 block of King George Terrace.
Police say the woman was sitting in her car at the lookout having a coffee when the man approached and opened her car door and pulled her out. Cyclists heard the woman’s cry for help and stopped to assist and called the police. Officers arrived and took one man into custody and called for paramedics to tend to some minor injuries sustained by the woman during the attack.
Police are investigating the suspect in relation to a break and enter not far from the assault.
Detectives are interviewing the witnesses and the investigation is ongoing.
This appears to be an isolated incident, say police.
