At approximately 2:15 a.m. on Oct. 20, police observed a fight outside a local bar. They intervened and determined that the main aggressor was unconscious on the ground. The man had been observed trying to assault his girlfriend. When a second man intervened, the suspect turned his anger on the Good Samaritan, who defended himself. The suspect was treated on site and had to be restrained when he became combative with police and paramedics. Charges are pending against the 50-year-old Salmon Arm resident.
