Arrests made in hit and run

The perpetrators of a hit-and run in Duncan last Sunday were caught, but police are still trying to track down the victim.

The male pedestrian was struck by a black Audi sedan in the parking lot of the Safeway gas station on Trunk Road around 6:45 p.m. A witness told police that the vehicle sped away without stopping, while the victim got up and limped away. His level of injuries is unknown.

"Police have actively made attempts to locate the victim, but to date do not know who he is," North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday reported.

The vehicle was later located in Chemainus with two occupants inside. They have been charged with numerous offences, including possession of the stolen 2005 Audi A4.

Anyone who might know the identity of the injured pedestrian should contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
