Mother takes son to apologize at RCMP station and other Kitimat police files

A selection of calls for service from the RCMP between November 25 and December 1.

November 25

Police could not locate the suspect vehicle in a call about erratic driving on Lahakas Boulevard, between SuperValu and the hospital. There were no plates or driver description provided.

Police did track down a suspect vehicle reported on the highway of driving erratically.  The driver of a white car pulled over and was given a warning by the officer. The driver had an N and showed no signs of intoxication.

November 26

Police responded to an abandoned 9-1-1 call, but no emergency was determined, just the result of an argument between two people. Victim services was declined.

November 27

A parrot in a living room is suspected as the cause of a false alarm on Quatsino Boulevard. The alarm indicated a broken window but everything appeared in order in the home.

Threats were exchanged between men, stemming from frustration over children visitation rights. No arrests, but police told to call if there were more issues.

November 28

RCMP were called to retrieve what a homeowner in the Kildala neighbourhood said was either a skateboard, surfboard or snowboard. As per the media report, “After an extensive analysis of the item, member determined the item to be a skateboard, as it was found to have wheels, thus making it unsuitable for water or snow.” It’s a black and red board, valued at around $50. Contact the RCMP if you know or are the owner.

A depressed, intoxicated male was reported to police as possibly wanting to harm himself. Police attended and took him voluntarily to the hospital. Officers stayed with the man for two hours.

November 29

Three youths were reported on the steps leading into an apartment building at around 3 a.m. All three appeared intoxicated. Two were returned to their parents while a third was taken to the hospital for treatment.

A complainant called to report that her boyfriend was allegedly bear sprayed by a male who came to their house. Two suspects were arrested and charges are being forwarded to the Crown for assault with a weapon. Police did not disclose a motive.

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.
