RCMP arrest the same man twice in a day after two separate assault complaints

Same suspect in two assaults

A man is facing charges in two assaults that happened within a span of four hours.

Kamloops RCMP officers were called to an assault report in the 100-block of Victoria Street West around 11:00 a.m. on Nov. 20, 2022. A woman was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police used surveillance footage to identify a suspect who was arrested a couple of hours later, and then released with a court date and conditions.

Then around 3:00 p.m. the same day, frontline officers responded to a business in the 1000-block of Columbia Street West, where a man had allegedly assaulted two people and then fled the scene.

The man was arrested a short time later but he was again released on conditions with a pending court date.

Anyone who witnessed or has information related to these assaults is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-41535.
