West Shore RCMP have arrested a 14-year-old boy after receiving reports that several people were threatened with a knife in Langford.
On Oct. 23, RCMP received a call that a suspect was in the McDonald’s at 854 Langford Pkwy. threatening to kill several people with a knife.
When officers arrived, they were told the teen had left and got on a bus to Sooke. The bus was intercepted and he was arrested.
Officers seized the knife from the boy and he was released on an undertaking with conditions.
A few weeks into November, Sooke RCMP received more tips that while the teen was on the bus, he threatened to kill people on the bus while brandishing the knife at them.
The boy was then arrested again and is now facing charges including two counts of assault with a weapon, one count of possession of a concealed weapon, and one count of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
He has conditions including not having contact with any of the victims, not attending the McDonald’s or any BC Transit bus or property, and not to possess any weapons including knives.
He has a court date set in January 2023.
None of the charges have been heard or proven in court.
