Nude woman, man attack Mounties

Three people involved in altercation with police in Sooke

Three people were arrested Tuesday following a violent altercation with Sooke Mounties behind Western Foods on Sooke Road.

RCMP officers arrived at the scene around 9 p.m. after someone called about a woman screaming in the forested area behind Evergreen Centre. There, they located a tent with three people in it, one man and two women.

The man and one of the women got out of the tent, nude and intoxicated, refusing to identify themselves and becoming confrontational towards police, said Cpl. Joe Holmes.

One of the women tried to bite, kick, punch and spit on the officers, while the man was trying to fight with police.

Once in handcuffs, the woman suspect continued to resist and attempted to run away. She was soon recaptured.

The suspects, all age 23, were squatters with no fixed address. Charges are pending.
