West Shore RCMP are hunting for a man in relation to a sexual assault in Langford on Nov. 1.

Police say a 22-year-old Victoria woman asked two males for a ride home from Victoria’s downtown early Tuesday morning, but was driven to a home in Langford. Police allege she was sexually assaulted by two males.

Solomon Akintoye, 28, of Saanich, has been charged with sexual assault and appeared in court on Monday. He was released on a number of conditions, including no contact with the co-accused or the victim.

RCMP haven’t located the second suspect, Godstime Obelikpyha, 28, of no fixed address. A warrant has been issued for his arrest in relation to the sexual assault. He has an outstanding sexual assault charge from an offense in the Lower Mainland.

Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said investigators had to do some investigative work to track down Akintoye. It’s unclear if either men reside at the Langford home. The victim didn’t know her alleged attackers, Rochlitz said.

Obelikphya is described as a black male, five foot nine (175 cm) and 176 lbs., (80 kg).

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Godstime Obelikpyha, is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
