RCMP investigate alleged assault on a child in Langford
West Shore RCMP are investigating a report of an assault on a child.
It happened Thursday at about 4:30pm as the 10 year old boy was riding a bike on Toth Place, southwest of Veteran's Memorial Parkway and Highway 1 in Langford.
According to the report a man came out of the bushes and punched the lad in the stomach before walking away. He was not physically injured, but it was scary for the child.
The man said something to the boy before leaving, but RCMP have not revealed what that was.
The boy described the suspect as having a "grumpy face", and wearing a black baseball cap, black jacket, and black gloves.
RCMP are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to contact West Shore RCMP (250-474-2264) or report it anonymously through Crimestoppers (1-800-222-8477).
