Victoria, British Columbia — A Victoria, B.C. driver got a surprise delivery of wellness and self-care through the window of their Prius on March 6., prompting local police to scour dashcam footage for the mystery Himalayan salt rock thrower.
The vehicle was occupied at the time of the salty assault, which took place at the intersection of Douglas and Johnson streets around 6:45 p.m., leaving the driver with non-life-threatening injuries that were treated on-scene.
Initially reported as a thrown brick, Victoria police attended to a scene where it was found that a Himalayan salt rock had smashed through a car window, striking the driver and showering them in glass.
Victoria police said the suspect was seen walking away eastbound on Johnson Street. The suspect is described as a 50-year-old Caucasian man with a medium build. He had long grey hair and wore a black winter coat with a fur-trimmed hood.
Police are seeking dashcam footage and any other information about the incident. The victim was heading southbound on Douglas Street in a grey Toyota Prius and had stopped at the intersection when the rock smashed the window.
