Police attended and arrested the male before releasing him on a promise to appear for a September court date.

The matter was an internal affair and there is no risk to the public at the business, Chief Andy Brinton added.

That same day police pulled over a driver for a burnt-out headlight on their vehicle along Fort Street entering Oak Bay. A record check showed the driver was wanted by Victoria Police for assault and VicPD attended and took custody of the male.
