A 21-year-old male was assaulted in Williams Lake Sunday, July 20.

At 10:50 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of that a male was walking near the 200 block of Donald Road when he was confronted by three individuals.

One male, wearing a bandana over his face, attempted to bear spray him, but the wind carried the spray away allowing the victim to run into a nearby store and call the police.

The suspects were described as a female wearing all black clothing, a male wearing a large white T-shirt and a male wearing a red hoodie and red bandana.

The suspects fled into Boitanio park upon hearing the police sirens, however were located and arrested for assault by officers.

The investigation revealed all subjects involved in the incident were known to each other.  The matter is still under investigation.

Officers attended and noted two large shoe prints on the passenger side doors of a White 2014 Chevy Equinox registered to the ministry of agriculture.

The vehicle was last seen undamaged on July 18. No other vehicles in the lot were damaged.

Police are asking anyone with information pertaining to this matter to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
