Man robbed at knife point in Langford

Victim walking on Galloping Goose Trail near Kelly Road

West Shore RCMP are searching for three suspects who allegedly robbed a man at knifepoint on the Galloping Goose Trail in Langford on Tuesday afternoon in broad daylight.

At around 2:30 p.m. a 26-year-old Langford man was walking on the trail near Brittany Drive and Kelly Road when he was approached by three unknown individuals who demanded his wallet.

The victim punched one of the suspects who then produced an edged weapon and stole the victim’s wallet. Other than recovering from a swollen hand obtained by the punch, the victim was not hurt in the robbery.

The first suspect is described as a Caucasian male just under six feet tall, weighing roughly 200 pounds. It is estimated he is between 18 and 19 years of age with red hair and hazel eyes. He wore a black hoody with a red flat-brimmed ball cap and blue jeans.

The second suspect is described as five feet four inches tall, wearing a blue sports jersey and jeans. There is no description available for the third suspect. No gender was immediately available for the latter two suspects.

West Shore RCMP are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen individuals matching these descriptions in the area. Detachment spokesperson Const. Alex Berube said while the robbery appears to be an isolated incident, police are still encouraging trail users to be cautious and travel in pairs.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
