Woman found beaten

A Lake Country man is facing numerous criminal charges after a woman was found severely beaten.

RCMP responded to a home on the 13000 block of McCreight Road at 3:40 p.m. Sunday, to check on residents after they received reports of a suspicious circumstance.

When police arrived, they were met outside by a severely beaten woman, and a delirious and incoherent man.

“Our investigation led to the eventual arrest of that male,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

“The scene was secured by police, who obtained a warrant to search the premises to gather evidence.”

Lonnie Noel Smith, 39, of Lake Country, has been charged with numerous offences, including aggravated assault, unlawful confinement and uttering threats.

The two were known to each other, and the woman is recovering from the injuries she suffered. 

Smith remains in custody and is expected to appear in court Friday.

O’Donaghey says this was an isolated incident, and there is no risk to the public.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288.
