Sooke man jumped by teenagers after refusing to hand over drugs

A Sooke man has been left with minor injuries after police say he was jumped by teenagers while out on a late-night walk last week.

On November 22nd, Sooke RCMP says a man was walking alone on a path near Maple Avenue when he was approached by a group of teenagers. The group demanded the man hand over the cannabis he was carrying, but the victim refused to give it up.

Sooke RCMP says the group of teenagers then attacked the victim, kicking him when he fell to the ground. The teenagers then took the victim’s wallet and keys and ran from the scene northbound on Maple Avenue South.

Alongside frontline investigators, West Shore Police Dog services attended the scene but were unable to pick up a scent.

All three of the suspects are caucasian and believed to be between the ages of 16 and 19. One of the suspects is described to have shoulder length curly hair and was wearing a toque, the second who was wearing a blue jacket with lots of pockets, and the third who was over six feet tall.

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time, or recognizes the suspects, are asked to call the Sooke RCMP Detachment at (250) 642-5241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
