Police seek information on injured woman



A Colwood councillor and two View Royal firefighters were en route home when they spotted the female on the side of Wishart Road.

West Shore RCMP are looking for information on an injured female found on the side of the road in Colwood just after midnight on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 17.

A Colwood councillor and two View Royal firefighters were on the road when they spotted the female on the side of Wishart Road. The firefighter provided first aid until paramedics could arrive, who then transported her to Victoria General Hospital.

The female sustained substantial injuries to her upper body, but police aren’t saying anything more. She has since been released from hospital.

“We can’t really comment on the specifics because we don’t want to jeopardize our ongoing investigation,” RCMP spokesperson Cst. Sarah Beckett said. “We’ve been really aggressively attacking this and trying to figure out what happened. It’s become a complex investigation.”

The matter is under investigation and police are seeking information from the public. West Shore RCMP are asking anyone who saw a lone female walking in the area of Wishart Road at around midnight on Nov. 17, or anyone who knows anything about the incident, to call the detachment at 250-474-2264 or, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
