Assault with a weapon at Anahim Lake

The RCMP are hoping to identify two suspects after an attempted assault at Anahim Lake Tuesday.

The RCMP are hoping to identify two suspects after an attempted assault at Anahim Lake west of Williams Lake Tuesday.

“On Sept. 29 at 6:50 p.m. the Anahim Lake RCMP were called to the Eagles’ Nest Resort regarding a possible robbery,” the RCMP said.

Two intoxicated males approached the cashier in a attempt to buy beer. When they were denied the purchase they left and went out into the parking lot.

Police said when the resort owner confronted the males and asked them to leave the property, one of the males allegedly produced a large can of bear spray and held it up to the resort owner.

The resort owner was able to flee without getting sprayed, however, the suspect then proceeded to kick the front glass door of the building causing the glass to break, then fled up the road to a getaway vehicle.

Both suspects are First Nation males in their mid 20s. One is described as 6 feet, four inches, with a small black moustache wearing a black hoodie with white stripe. The second suspect is described as 5 feet nine inches, medium build, with short black hair and wearing a red hoodie.

The getaway vehicle is described as an older style grey/light brown coloured van.

If you have any information regarding this offence, please contact the Anahim Lake RCMP Detachment at 250-742-3211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
