Argument leads to attack with wood shelving

A 23-year-old Saanich man faces a charge of assault causing bodily harm after Victoria police say he entered a home and struck a 21-year-old Central Saanich man in the head with a block of wood shelving early Saturday.

“The assailant and the victim were known to each other, and had been in some form of argument earlier in the evening,” Victoria police spokesperson Mike Tucker said of the attack which happened in the 600-block of Linden Ave. in Fairfield.

The suspect fled the scene, but was later arrested by Victoria police with the help of Saanich police at a home in the 5200-block of Harold Green in Saanich.
