Police Report – domestic assaults and climbing accidents

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Luggage lost

Apr. 30 a 34 year old Calgary man reported leaving his backpack and wallet near the gas pumps at the One Easy Stop in Ashcoft. Both the backpack and wallet have Montreal Canadiens logo on them. The pack contains mainly clothing. Anyone finding the backpack and/or wallet can turn them in at the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Assault with a weapon

Apr. 30 police were called to a report of a domestic assault at a residence on Old Cariboo Rd. in Cache Creek. The suspect, a 26 year old Cache Creek man, was located in the downtown area and arrested. He was charged with assault with a weapon, as he had used a full Litre of orange juice to throw at and hit the victim, who was not injured. He was also charged with breaching probation and resisting arrest.

Fastest one loses

May 3 at 2:50 pm a Traffic Services officer spotted a car travelling at a high rate of speed on Hwy 97 south of 70 Mile. The 2013 was the fastest of three speeding vehicles, travelling at 156 kph in the 100 kph zone. The 23 year old Williams Lake man was given a ticket for excessive speed and his car was impounded for seven days.

Drunk and disorderly

May 4 at 3:30 police were called to the Ashcoft Reserve to deal with a 26 year old man who  was causing a disturbance. He was found nearby, intoxicated and obnoxious. He was arrested and lodged in cells until sober, after being examined by BC Ambulance for a self-inflicted wound.

Held in custody for assault

May 4 at 4:30 pm police were called to a Cache Creek motel where they arrested and charged  a 39 year old Cache Creek man, formerly of Lillooet, for assault and failing to comply with conditions of probation. He was held in custody until his court date on May 8. Alcohol was a factor. The woman received minor injuries.

Climber falls

The 54 year old  Walhachin man was free climbing with his son, a 22 year old Vancouver resident, in a known climbing area about 14 km west of Cache Creek on May 1. They were both climbing  without the use of a harness, ropes or climbing helmets when the father fell about six metres (19 feet) onto a ledge, which was about 15 metres (49 feet) above the ground. He injured his elbow and shoulder and was unable to climb any further, prompting his son to call 911. Members of Kamloops Search and Rescue (KSAR) and South Cariboo Search and Rescue responded and lifted the man to safety.
