Masset police busy over weekend

  • May. 28, 2008 11:00 a.m.

Numerous assaults and intoxicated people kept Masset police busy over the weekend. On May 23, RCMP responded to a complaint that a Masset resident assaulted an adult male. The man was hospitalized with minor injuries, but neither party is being cooperative, so no charges have been laid. On May 24, a female resident claimed she was assaulted by a man carrying a knife. On the same evening, police responded to a complaint that a man with a knife had slashed vehicle tires. Police took a male and his female companion into custody related to the event. The woman was released without charge and the male was remanded to appear in Prince Rupert court on May 27 on charges of assault with a weapon, carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose and mischief under $5,000. Constable Chad Chamberlain said in a news release that this event was apparently in retaliation for an assault the previous night. Police are asking anyone with information relating to this incident to contact the Masset RCMP at 626-3991. Several intoxicated people were also taken into custody for being intoxicated in public and causing a disturbance. One male was under bail conditions that he not consume alcohol and was charged and later released with further conditions pending a court appearance on June 5. Most others were released without charge, but one male assaulted another prisoner and was charged with assault and uttering threats.
