Just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday April 4, 2023 frontline officers received a report that a 14-year-old had been assaulted at the McArthur Island skate park, in the 15500 block of Island Parkway, by an adult man.

Prior to the assault the victim youth and a second youth, had an altercation which resulted in the victim youth being on the ground, at which point the suspect allegedly kicked the victim in the face, states S/Sgt. Janelle Shoihet of the Kamloops RCMP.

The suspect, who is described a Caucasian man, approximately 35-years of age, wearing black pants, dark running shoes, a black hat, an orange hoodie and a grey hoody with a graphic blue t-shirt and a reddish beard, was last seen running from the skate park.

We are releasing a photo of the suspect taken shortly after the assault, in hopes that someone can identify him, S/Sgt. Shoihet says.

If you are able to identify this man, you are asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 at cite file 2023-11379.
