File # 2021-1836

On March 25th, 2021 at approximately 4pm the Dawson Creek RCMP were dispatched to Dave's No Frills grocery store located in Dawson Creek for a report of a disturbance.

Investigation determined that a group of individuals had entered the establishment without face masks as per the current Provincial Health Order and created a disturbance for which they were asked to leave by multiple employees. An employee followed the group to the parking lot to collect license plates for a subsequent report to police. During an altercation between the employee and the subjects, one of the subjects punched the employee in the face. Police were called which resulted in the arrest of one male. The involved victim received relatively minor injuries which did not require medical treatment.

Kevin Johnston (49yrs) has been charged with one count of Assault. He was released by a Judge on March 26th with a variety of conditions.
