A man is accused of punching another driver through their window in a road rage incident.

Saanich Police are looking for a man who is a suspect in a road rage incident that happened in November at the intersection of Royal Oak Drive and Blenkinsop Road.

Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers says police have been looking for the man, but have been so far unsuccessful so they have released the image to the public.

Cst. Markus Anastasiades, public information officer with Saanich Police, says the incident occurred around 4 p.m. when the man got out of his car and punched another driver through their window when both vehicles were stopped.

Anastasiades says the driver who was punched drove away, but a picture of the suspect was captured.

He says the incident wasn’t reported for a few days.

Police have located the owner of the vehicle, but the owner has been uncooperative in finding the driver in this incident.

“We’re not getting cooperation, so we’re looking for him this way,” Anastasiades said. “The vehicle is a unique vehicle and it’s older, I believe it’s a Toyota station wagon. And the individual appears to be wearing a high visibility jacket so we’re confident somebody in that community knows who he is and will come forward.”

“It is really disappointing to see that people’s anger and aggression get the best of them in these trivial matters of road rage.”


Anyone with information is asked to call Saanich Police at 250-475-4321 or the Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
