Masset RCMP responded to 21 calls for service between Dec. 10 and 16, says Cpl. Andrew Baylis. Files of note include: On Dec. 13, RCMP began an investigation after receiving a report of an alleged sexual assault that had occurred 50 years ago. The Masset RCMP is currently investigating this allegation. On Dec. 16, RCMP responded to an anonymous report of an impaired driver leaving the Mile Zero Pub. Members attended the area and patrols for the vehicle described by the complainant were made, however the vehicle was not located. On Dec. 16, RCMP responded to a report of a domestic assault at a residence on Moon Street. The victim reported being punched in the face by her husband. The husband was later found and arrested and subsequently released on a promise to appear with conditions. This matter is still under investigation. During the week, RCMP responded to two calls for service regarding intoxicated persons in public. One man was taken to hospital due to his severe level of intoxication and the other was lodged in Masset detachment cells until sober enough to care for himself.
