Victoria BC -  VicPD is warning people after a woman was pricked by a needle that appeared to be deliberately placed in a planter.

This morning, officers were called to the 700-block of Johnson Street after a woman reported that she had located a needle that was placed in a planter with the needle sticking up. Two photos of the needle are below.

















When our officer attended, the woman stated that she had been pricked by another needle while gardening a week ago. That needle was placed in another planter in the same area. The woman sought medical attention at that time.
