A suspect has been arrested related to a stabbing incident Saturday in Esquimalt.
An Oak Bay Police member located the male behind Oak Bay High later on Saturday and spoke with him until Victoria Police members arrived and arrested the male without incident, said Oak Bay Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.
The arrest was among the Oak Bay Police calls responded to for the week of Oct. 7 to Oct. 13.
The week was marred by a hit-and-run on Thursday when a driver hit and injured a 20-year-old woman and also killed her dog in a “gruesome” and “gory” incident at the intersection of Foul Bay and Leighton roads. The young woman’s mother said the victim and her dog were on the crosswalk when they were struck.
The incident is being investigated by VicPD as Foul Bay borders Victoria and Oak Bay.
Oak Bay Police also responded to a disturbing incident on Friday at the 2500-block of Beach Drive. The male approached a woman and asked for a cigarette. After she said no, she said the man then threatened to slit her throat and stated he was going to kill her and her husband.
The male was located by police and immediately became hostile and aggressive, threatening to kill the police officer, Bernoties said. He was taken in to custody and the matter is still under investigation.
