Williams Lake RCMP have one person in custody so far following a serious assault that took place at a residence on Midnight Drive overnight.
Staff Sgt. Del Byron said police received a report of a male being assaulted with a weapon at a residence in the 700 block of Midnight Drive shortly after 1 a.m. Sept. 30.
Officers attended the scene and detained a possible suspect who was located nearby, Byron said.
“It is believed that two individuals attended a targeted residence to speak with a specified individual. While doing so, the subject was assaulted,” he said.
Byron said the incident was likely a targeted attack that could be drug related and the public is not at risk.
Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or CrimeStoppers.
