Woman robbed

On June 8, 2014 at about 10 p.m., a young female resident of Sooke was walking on the “Mulligans” trail near Townsend Road. As she stopped to pick up an item on the trail, she was attacked from behind and pushed down, face first, into the trail.  The assailant grabbed her purse and took her wallet.   As her glasses were knocked off during the robbery, the victim could provide only a basic description of the male.

Anyone having any information is urged to call the Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241 or Crimestoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Support appreciated

The Sooke RCMP would like to thank the residents of Sooke for their kind gestures of support following the  recent shooting deaths of RCMP members  Cst. Dave Ross, Cst. Fabrice Gevaudan, and Cst. Douglas Larche, in Moncton, NB.

“Every day we have received phone calls, cards, and flowers at monument at the detachment, as well as words of condolence and support from members of the community.  This has been truly appreciated by our members and staff during this very difficult time” said S/Sgt. Jeff McArthur.
