Jogger hit by stolen car

UPDATE: 1:15 p.m.

Police have obtained surveillance video that may be of help in tracking a suspect in Sunday’s hit-and-run in the Mount Paul Industrial Park.

The victim, a female jogger, is reported in stable condition in hospital with a number of serious injuries to her ankle, pelvis and head.  

Tk'emlups Rural RCMP said Monday morning that all officers are engaged in the investigation. They canvassed several businesses in the area for their surveillance videos. One of the cameras captured the two women jogging past, then suspect car passes several minutes later.    

A forensic identification officer has examined the stolen car involved, which sustained considerable damage to the front passenger's side hood and passenger's side windshield.

Police are still asking anyone who may have seen a  person of interest — a suspicious young adult male on the Halston Bridge at 7:45 a.m. Sunday — with a black hoody  and a white back pack to call police. He was acting strangely, with behaviour that included walking in circles on the roadway of the Halston Bridge.

Police suspect he may have been given a ride because he could not be located minutes later when city police officers patrolled the area.

If anyone has any information, they are asked to call the rural detachment at 250-314-1800, or if they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers.
