November 30

Police responded to an abandoned 9-1-1 call at the Kitimat Ice Arena from a payphone and determined two nearby youths were the likely callers, but was simply a result of them playing around. The mother took the boys to the RCMP office to apologize in person later on.

December 1

A person returned to retrieve their vehicle from The Ol’ Keg parking lot but found their rear tire was punctured with a knife.  No suspects in the case.

A complainant called reporting she had been allegedly assaulted by her boyfriend. The suspect was later found with injuries to his face, and investigation later determined the complainant herself was actually the likely primary aggressor. The woman was arrested and released on promise to appear to court.

A caller allegedly threatened a man over the phone that he’d be pepper sprayed. Police say this was in retaliation of an earlier alleged incident where the victim in that case allegedly pepper sprayed the caller. Police spoke with the caller and gave a warning, a solution the complainant in this case was happy with.
