Vancouver Island couple assaulted after confronting teens performing social media stunt
A Courtenay man is at home recuperating from injuries after he was allegedly assaulted by a 16-year-old boy when he caught the teen kicking his door in the early hours for a social media stunt.
But after police viewed video of Monday’s incident, Owen May, 48, was told there was a possibility he would be charged.
For 4½ years, May and his wife Laura, 42, have had their front door kicked in the middle of the night.
“It would happen for a week or two and then stop for a while before happening again. I just wanted it to stop,” said May, a fishing guide for 22 years.
May bought a security camera to catch the perpetrator. By the next morning, he had a video showing a person kicking his door at 1 a.m. He shared the video with police. The person came back on two more nights.
