A woman who used her vehicle to hit a motorcycle twice has been released on a number of conditions including that she is not permitted to enter Langford, West Shore RCMP say in a release.

On April 23, around 7 p.m., the woman driving a black 2013 BMW 328i hit her vehicle into a parked Harley Davidson in the 3000 block of Glen Lake Road.

She then drove away, and came back and drove through the front yard and hit the motorcycle a second time, and then hit the front of the house.

On the second instance of hitting the motorcycle, the owner was standing next to it, and was also hit. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and there was extensive damage to the home.

West Shore RCMP say the victim and suspect are known to each other and there is not believed to be ongoing risk to the public.

The suspect, who police do not name, is a 35-year-old woman. She fled the Langford home after the second instance of hitting the motorcycle and was found and arrested by the Victoria Police Department.

She was held in custody and brought before the courts and was charged with two counts of mischief to property, one count of mischief over $5,000, one count of assault with a weapon, and one count of dangerous operation of a conveyance causing bodily harm.

She was released on the conditions of having no contact with the victim, not possess any weapons or firearms, and she is banned from entering Langford.
