Two men are in custody after a fight along Cowichan Lake Road Friday morning, police say.

A witness-motorist told the News Leader Pictorial she saw one man laying on the sidewalk, and what appeared to be a passerby helping him north of the roundabout, at the bottom of the Gibbins Road hospital hill.

"The man down was actually two men fighting," said RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday of the North Cowichan/Duncan detachment.

"This is in the very early stages of investigation. The whole story isn't in yet," she said of interviews, and evidence gathering.

The extent of injuries was also unknown at press time Friday afternoon.
