On February 13, 2023, at approximately 10:30 am, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP received a report regarding a young person who allegedly attended the Cowichan Secondary School property with an edged weapon. The youth suspect was reportedly chasing after another youth, both of whom were unrelated to the school. Police officers attended the area immediately and learned that the youth suspect had fled on foot. The second youth involved was located uninjured, however refused to cooperate with investigators. Police believe that these two youths are known to each other and that this was an isolated incident and there is no ongoing risk to students or the public. No one was physically injured.

Cowichan Secondary School, as per school district protocol, was placed into a ‘hold and secure’ during this incident for the safety of their staff and students. Officers surrounded the area, locating the suspect youth a short time later and safely took them into custody. Once the safety of all involved was established, the hold and secure was cancelled.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are continuing to investigate this matter and are looking for any further witnesses to come forward. If you witnessed this event or have video please contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
