The Serious Crimes Unit continues to investigate a late evening aggravated assault from on June 26.

Police were called to the Ruth King Elementary School grounds, 2764 Jacklin Rd. in Langford and learned of an altercation involving two groups of youths. Those involved are believed to be between the ages of 16 and 23.

Police believe there were two groups walking on Goldstream Avenue between Peatt and Matson roads that crossed paths between 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. The video below shows one of the two groups.

Two of the men were wearing all black clothing, one man wore a black full sleeve shirt with blue shorts and white sneakers, another man wore a red T-shirt with white writing, dark-coloured shorts and had dyed blond hair, and the last man wore a full sleeve dark grey/green shirt with an outline of a white box on the chest, black shorts with white stripes and white sneakers.
