Sometimes, the RCMP do not have to travel far to find their suspects.
Enderby RCMP received a complaint Sunday from a 49-year-old city man who said he had been assaulted by man, 39, who was known to him.
“He said the man threw him up against a wall and threatened to beat him with a metal pipe,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The suspect allegedly stole the man’s car keys and took off in his vehicle.”
The vehicle was found outside the suspect’s residence, and, a short time later, the suspect was arrested as he was walking on the sidewalk in front of the Enderby RCMP detachment.
“The man was arrested for robbery and uttering threats,” said Molendyk.
The suspect was taken into custody where he remains, pending charges and a potential court date.
He is expected to be charged with robbery and uttering threats.
