Police say that around 2 p.m. on Sept. 29, a woman was walking on Sunriver Way. She noticed an unknown male walking behind her but lost sight of him.

Later, as she walked a path by the Sooke River, she encountered the same man and she said that he spoke to her, produced a weapon, and committed the assault, police say.

The woman fought back and fled the area.

Police say the suspect may have been injured in the encounter.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 250-642-5241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
