A man had to be carried out by police after he allegedly urinated inside a building in downtown Victoria, became aggressive and then refused to leave.
According to the Victoria Police Department, officers responded to a building in the 800-block of Douglas Street at around 8:30 a.m. Friday after learning that a man had urinated inside the premise and was blocking access to utility rooms.
Police did not identify the business in question, but photos posted on private Facebook groups show a number of police vehicles parked in front of the National Bank building and Cora.
Const. Cam MacIntyre, media spokesperson with VicPD, told CHEK News the man would not leave the building and had to be hauled out by officers. HE also said the reason there were so many police vehicles was due to the man’s aggressive behaviour.
“We attended and the man refused to comply with officers’ direction and became aggressive,” said MacIntyre in an e-mail. “The man would not walk so several officers carried him to a police vehicle, hence the number of officers on scene.”
The man was eventually arrested for mischief and obstruction.
