Couple arrested in 'vicious' Victoria assault
Two people have been arrested in connection with what police are calling a "vicious assault" in Victoria, B.C.
Police say the investigation began when they got a call from someone who said a woman, who appeared to have been assaulted, came to her door at about 1 a.m. PT Thursday to ask for help in getting a taxi.
Investigators contacted local taxi companies and traced the 23-year-old victim's address.
After speaking with the victim, officers identified two suspects. A 46-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, who are both known to police, were arrested on Friday morning.
Police also seized a pellet gun and stun gun allegedly used in the "vicious assault."
Charges have not been laid, but police say the case involves allegations of forcible confinement, extortion, sexual assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
