Man assaulted with blow torch
Police are investigating after receiving a second-hand report of a man assaulted with a blow torch.
On February 13, around 10:48 p.m., the Kamloops RCMP Detachment was contacted after a man attended the hospital with injuries to his head consistent with his claim of being assaulted by someone with a blow torch. The incident apparently occurred the day before.
The investigation is ongoing.
Glass-smash break and enter on Columbia Street
A recycling bin was used to help someone steal from a store on Columbia Street on Valentine’s Day.
Just before 4 a.m. on February 14, Kamloops RCMP frontline officers responded to a commercial alarm on the 1100-block of Columbia Street. When police officers arrived, they found a glass door had been smashed. Police reviewed surveillance footage and observed a suspect smash the glass out of the door, then load a recycling bin with stolen items before fleeing northbound on foot towards Summit Drive.
Patrols were made but no one was located. Police are investigating.
Police deal with one man four times this weekend
A Kamloops man may be facing mischief charges after police responded to at least four complaints involving him over the weekend.
The first call of the weekend came around 2:10 p.m. on Friday February 12, when police received a report of an unwanted person banging on a door at a residence on the 400-block of Hilltop Avenue. Police attended, spoke with the man, then drove him to a different location. The next day, the man allegedly returned to the location, but was gone when police arrived.
Around 3:14 p.m. on February 14, police were called back to Hilltop Avenue for a report of a man trying to smash windows with a large rock. Police attended and arrested him, then released him with a court date and conditions related to the offence.
Shortly after, around 4:20 a.m., police were called to a restaurant on the 600-block of Fortune Drive, where a man was causing a disturbance, banging on glass and throwing coffee.
Police arrested the same man and lodged him in cells to prevent continuation. The complainant in that Fortune Drive file was not interested in pursuing charges.
