Man Arrested at UVic

At approximately 12:00 pm, May 14th, Saanich Police responded to the University of Victoria (UVic) for a report of a man inside the First People’s House threatening staff with a knife.

Officers located the male outside the First People’s House, with the assistance of UVic staff, and took him into custody.

There were no physical injuries that resulted from this incident.

Although the investigation is in its early stages, the male will be held in custody and be brought before a judge as soon as practicable. Saanich Police investigators will be requesting he not be permitted to return to campus.

Although it is believed the male was camping on campus, he was not believed to be part of the protest encampment.
