Upset man takes frustrations out on Oaklands neighbourhood

No criminal charges are being considered, man's mother called

A 22-year-old man yelling at the top of his lungs in the middle of Shelbourne Street prompted some Oaklands residents to take action.

Victoria police were called to investigate around 4 a.m. on Sunday (Jan. 15), and learned the man was upset over a recent argument he had with his girlfriend.

“The couple was inside a taxi when the argument started, but owing to the young man’s level of intoxication he passed out before the issue could be settled,” Victoria Deputy Police Chief John Ducker wrote on the department’s operations blog.

“He awoke later to find himself alone in the cab – his girlfriend gone. Frustrated, he then decided to wake up the entire neighbourhood.”

The man’s mother, an Oak Bay resident, was called to come and take her son home.

No criminal charges are being considered.
