A bystander who attempted to intervene in the assault of a youth in downtown Victoria was attacked with a skateboard, according to Victoria police.
Officers were called to the 1300-block of Wharf Street just after 9 p.m. Monday for a report of four or more people fighting.
They found a youth who had been assaulted and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The youth was taken to hospital and the attackers fled before police arrived.
Investigators obtained video surveillance of the assault showing two or more people attacking the youth.
