Assault in Queen Charlotte

  • Dec. 31, 2008 6:00 p.m.

A man was taken into custody and flown to Prince Rupert for a Jan. 2 court date, after a pre-Christmas assault. The 20 year-old male was charged with assault and breaching his conditions after he beat up an individual in the early morning hours of Dec. 20. Alcohol was involved. The victim received minor injuries including a chipped tooth. In other news, the QC fire department were called to attend an accident on Christmas Eve near Skidegate Landing, to possibly use the Jaws of Life. But when the emergency vehicles arrived, there was no one at the scene. Constable Andrew West said the vehicle was wedged under a tractor trailer parked in a pullout at BC Tel Point. “It was opened like a tin can,” he said. The vehicle was a work truck said Constable West and is a write off. It was such bad damage that the passenger would have been killed if there was one, he said. By the time emergency vehicles arrived, the male driver had left the scene and was picked up by a passerby and taken to hospital. Alcohol was involved.
