Man falls asleep in the wrong house and other Kitimat RCMP calls

A selection of the calls the Kitimat RCMP have been called out on between October 21 and October 27.

A selection of the 96 calls for RCMP service between October 21 and 27:

October 21

Two men were arrested and are facing charges for an assault after a man was allegedly knocked out by two intoxicated males at 2:23 a.m. RCMP say that the two, a 32 and 33 year old, allegedly attacked the victim when he wouldn’t share the beer he was carrying.

At 3:41 a.m., police attended to a small fire at the Shell gas station when an electrical short lit a canopy covering a gas pump. The fire department extinguished the fire without incident.

A parent called the RCMP at 3:38 p.m. about three middle schoolers smoking marijuana near Nechako School.

October 22

Police are investigating a hit and run in the Overwaitea parking lot. A white Ford Fusion received damage to its front left light, and hood. It was parked to the right of the new restaurant under construction.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a Honda generator was found on fire in the basketball court at Nechako Elementary. Investigation found that contractors working on the school had left out a ladder and the generator. No suspects are known following this incident. The value of the generator is said to be $1,000.

Police stopped an impaired driver just north of the Air Park after receiving a call about the possibly impaired driver. Two roadside screening tests failed the driver, who received immediate roadside prohibitions.

October 24

An 11-year-old called police and then went to their neigbour’s on Swan Street at around 7:35 a.m. after finding an unknown man in the lower bunk of her bed. (She had been sleeping in her dad’s bed. The dad had left for work earlier in the morning.) When police arrived at the home the man was found and arrested for being unlawfully in a dwelling home. Investigation found that the man had left a friend’s house around midnight, allegedly intoxicated, to walk to a home on Quail Street, but the suspect in question has no recollection about entering the home on Swan. The police determined not enough evidence existed to pursue charges since there was clearly no intent to commit a crime in this case.

October 25

Two men apparently had a loud argument on the walkway behind Plover Street, but neither individual wanted to talk to police about it. The police took one of the individuals, who was reportedly very intoxicated, back to their home, but no charges are being pursued.

Police found no indications of gunfire after being called to the area near Kuldo Blvd. and Okanagan St. at 8:38 p.m. It is thought it may have been fireworks which were also reported in the area. A similar complaint was called in at the same time from Forest Avenue, with the possible gunshots coming from the direction of Kitamaat Village Road, and again there are only indications it was likely the fireworks going off.

October 26

Police could not locate suspects who were allegedly hitting golf balls into homes and cars on Clifford Street, nor a later call for the same at Grebe/Gryfalcon Street.

Police also attended to two false alarms this day.

October 27

Police attended to a report of a fight, and came upon two intoxicated males at the Legion. One man was found injured and given stitches for a cut to his eye at the hospital. However it is believed that there was no intent to cause injury during the argument and no charges are being pursued.

A complainant contacted Kitimat RCMP to report a landlord issue and later said he wanted to speak with the attractive Kitimat RCMP member. When informed that she was not on duty, the complainant then reported that he required an ambulance. The person later said he had not taken pills but had a broken jaw from being punched the night before. The member could see no injuries. The complainant is well known to Kitimat RCMP and Kitimat EHS. EHS stated that they were obligated to take the complainant to KGH if he is stating that he requires medical attention.

If you have information about these or any other crimes, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or contact the Kitimat RCMP at 250-632-7111.
