Oak Bay police had previously taken another suspect into custody.

Police said that two people had entered a suite of a man they knew last week in order to sell him some items.

When no sale was made, one of them pulled what appeared to be a 9-mm handgun.

A credit card, a debit card and other items were taken. Police said the man with the gun stayed with the resident while the other went to an ATM to withdraw money.

Police said robbery at gunpoint is not common in Oak Bay and described the incident as a targeted event.
