Last weekend the RCMP received 75 calls for service. In his weekend roundup, Sgt. Rick LeBeuf highlighted some of the complaints.

On Saturday, Oct. 18 at 1 a.m. the police responded to a complaint from a witness at Boston Pizza who said she had just observed someone breaking into a car.

When officers arrived they searched the area for a suspect described as a First Nations male, five feet nine inches, wearing a white ball cap, black hoodie, and black pants.

The owner of the vehicle was located and an examination of the vehicle revealed the ignition had been tampered with.

Stolen out of the vehicle were a Samsung phone with a cracked screen, an FM transmitter, a power cable and a pair of prescription Ray Ban sunglasses.

At approximately 5:40 p.m. the RCMP were dispatched to a stabbing on Dodwell Street. Police attended and located a male and two females. Officers observed the male was bleeding from the head and arm.

Paramedics were called and they transported the injured party to the hospital.

Due to lack of co-operation from the victim no arrests were made.

Later that day the RCMP received a call at 6:31 p.m. that somebody had just broken the window at the RE/MAX office, located at 85 Third Ave. S.

The complainant reported she was in her car when she heard a loud crash and saw a male riding away on a bike with a backpack.

Police attended but were not able to locate the suspect. The investigation is continuing.

On Monday, Oct. 20 at 7:06 a.m. the owner of a vehicle called police to report that his 1997 blue and silver Dodge 2500 pickup truck bearing Alberta licence plates had been stolen overnight from a residence on First Avenue North.

At approximately 7:18 a.m. the RCMP dispatch advised the Williams Lake RCMP that the Dodge had been in a motor vehicle accident in the Quesnel area where members attended and found the Dodge on its roof.

A search of the surrounding area was negative in finding the driver or any occupants of the vehicle.

The follow-up investigation is to be conducted Quesnel RCMP.
