Vernon RCMP seek help in solving assault

Vernon RCMP are asking for the public’s help to solve an assault on a Salmon Arm man

Vernon RCMP are asking for the public’s help to solve an assault on a Salmon Arm man.

Just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, Vernon RCMP responded to a fight involving three people on 25th Avenue in front of the Green Valley Motel.

“The police investigation has learned that a 26-year-old man from Salmon Arm, in a pick-up, had stopped for the traffic light and was confronted by a male suspect on foot,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“It appears the man on foot attempted to assault the driver through his open window.  The suspect’s female accomplice then struck the back of the driver’s truck with an apparent metal pipe.”

Molendyk said the driver then got out of his vehicle to confront the two and he was assaulted by both suspects.

The woman struck him in the head several times with the alleged metal pipe before leaving on foot toward the Green Valley Motel.

The two suspects were not located and, at this time, the police are asking assistance from anyone who may have witnessed the assault to contact them with any information that will help to identify these suspects.

The severity of the Salmon Arm man’s injuries was not in the police report, nor did the report say if the man went to Vernon Jubilee Hospital, just up the hill from the incident, to be checked out.

Anyone with information with respect to this incident is being asked to contact the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
