VICTORIA -- Victoria police are on the lookout for a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant who evaded officers in Beacon Hill Park on Sunday.
Police are searching for Travis Moore, 28, who is wanted for breaching the conditions of his statutory release. He is currently serving a five-year sentence for multiple convictions including robbery, assault, assault causing bodily harm and break and enter.
Victoria police say they received a report that Moore was in the Beacon Hill Park area around 4 p.m. Sunday.
When officers arrived, they spotted him, but he reportedly fled into a bushy area of the park.
