Police Report – assaults and slashed tires

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Woman assaulted

Jan. 5 at 7:35 am police were called to an Ashcroft residence for a domestic assault in progress. The 36 year old male suspect was gone before police arrived but was located and arrested at another residence in the following day. He was charged with assault and the unlawful storage of firearms and then released with a “no contact” order for the 27 year old female victim. She has since moved out of Ashcroft. Two unsecure firearms were seized from the residence.

Tires stapled

Jan. 5 at 12:30 pm police received a report of mischief to a vehicle on Brink St. in Ashcroft. The owner of the car, a 70 year old Ashcroft woman, took her car in to have a leaky tire fixed. It was discovered than that there were staples puncturing the sidewalls of three of the car’s tires. It is unknown when this took place.

Swerved to avoid car

Jan. 6 at 10 am police attended a single vehicle rollover on Hwy 1 by Walhachin. The 63 year old Cache Creek driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to RIH for neck and back pain. She told police that she lost control of her vehicle when she pulled over to the side of the road to avoid an oncoming vehicle that had crossed into her lane.  The other vehicle is described as a black 1990s model of Nissan or Toyota. Anyone witnessing the accident is asked to call the RCMP at 453-2216.

Hit and run

Jan. 7 at 2:20 pm police were advised of a hit and run that had just occurred in the parking lot of the Ashcroft Post Office after a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta was struck by a gray Dodge Dakota. A witness provided a license plate to the RCMP for the truck and RCMP will be speaking to the Ashcroft owner. There was nn estimate of the damage to the car, owned by a 24 year old Kamloops woman.

Plates draw attention

Jan. 7 at 2:40 pm police received a report of another fender bender, this time in the parking lot of the Ashcroft Esso after a small red car, heading for the pumps, was struck by a CP truck that was just leaving. The car, driven by a 51 year old Cache Creek woman, was left with a four inch scratch on the door. However, police are now investigating whether the car was properly registered and insured.

Deer killed

Jan. 9 at 11 pm police received a report of a deer struck and killed on Hwy 1 about 28 km west of Ashcroft. The 62 year old Richmond man was driving a 2007 Lexus ES 350.
