Police seek witnesses to assault

Nanaimo RCMP are asking for the public’s help with information on an assault that occurred Sept. 3 in the parking lot of Country Club Centre.

The incident took place at about 7:45 a.m. and involved a male driving a small black car and the victim operating a green, 2000 four-door Saturn. The suspect driver was accompanied by an older female.

The 21-year-old male victim told police he was driving to work from Ladysmith and was tailgated by the black car for 30 minutes.

When the victim exited his car at the mall, the suspect confronted him, threw him to the ground and placed him in a headlock. The assault only stopped when the female passenger got out of the car and said police would be called.

The victim called police, but the suspect, described as a tall white male, thin, between 20-25 years of age with short, brown hair, was not located.

His first name might be ‘Brandon’, as the female called him that during the assault.

“We’re hoping someone driving from Ladysmith that morning saw this black car following the Saturn,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
