A man of no fixed address faces charges including robbery and assault with a weapon following an incident in Salmon Arm.
On Friday, Aug. 4, RCMP responded to a complaint of one man threatening another man with bear spray in what Staff Sgt. Scott West said was a targeted incident at 3rd Street SW and 5th Avenue SW.
“As a result of the police investigation at that time, it was determined that the two males involved have a recent history of violence between them involving weapons,” said West in an Aug. 17 media release, adding the men are known to each other and police.
West said the 28-year-old suspect had threatened the same man with a knife just days before the Aug. 4 incident.
“The suspect in this investigation was arrested shortly after the altercation on August 4 in the area of Narcisse St. NW and Fraser Ave. NW,” said West. “As a result of the arrest, the suspect was searched and a quantity of drugs in excess of the decriminalized amounts were seized from the male suspect.”
West said Crown council has approved charges of robbery, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and failure to comply with court-ordered conditions, and the suspect has been remanded into custody.
