  • Feb. 4, 2013 6:00 p.m.

Spring-like temperatures resulted in two teens being caught stunt-riding their bikes off the side of a building Saturday.

At 2:37 p.m. the RCMP responded to a report that teens on their bikes were jumping off the Oceans and Fisheries building at 480 Cameron St.

When police arrived they located the teens.

The youths were warned of the consequences of such acts and how charges of mischief could be pursued against them as a result of damage to the building consisting of marks on the side of the building from the bike wheels.

Shortly after midnight RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress in the 600 block of Ninth Avenue North. Upon arrival, police observed a “good Samaritan” detaining one of the culprits who was struggling and trying to escape. No one was injured and entry into the home was not gained, although further investigation revealed the detained culprit had successfully committed a break and enter previously at a residence one block away, and that he was not acting alone. Anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the Ninth Avenue/Western Avenue area (600 to 700 block), including door knocks where someone asked for a person who does not live at the residence, is asked to call the RCMP at (250) 392-6211.

Police responded to a woman’s report at 7:27 a.m. that three men in black hoodies, who had bear spray, were knocking on her and another person’s door on Second Ave. North. Police attended, saw evidence of bear spray being discharged on the snow outside of the residence, however, no suspects were located.

Police and BC Ambulance were called to Boston Pizza at 11:06 p.m. because a male was hurt due to being assaulted. When police arrived they met with the victim in the back of the ambulance and learned he was watching a UFC fight at Boston Pizza when he was assaulted.

The victim could not remember how he was assaulted and was transported to hospital to verify if his memory loss was due to intoxication or a concussion. Police later determined the victim was being rude to one of the servers and some of the other patrons which resulted in a heavy set male wearing a dark hoody and long black hair assaulting the victim.

The person who struck the victim then left the premises and has not been identified.

Feb. 3

Police responded to a call at 3:26 a.m. that a red car had hit a power transformer on Midnight Drive, after going through the intersection of Slater Street. The person reporting the incident was not able to obtain a license plate, but said the vehicle headed north on Midnight Drive and did not stop.

Police made patrols in the area but were unable to locate the vehicle. BC Hydro arrived on scene to fix the transformer.

At 5:25 p.m. police responded to a residence on First Avenue because a Silverado Chevy pick up was damaged overnight by person(s) unknown.

The owner of the vehicle reported that no entry was gained and nothing was taken.
