On April 12th just after 12p.m. the Port Hardy RCMP received several 911 calls after a man was assaulted in the Chancellor Heights trailer park in Port Hardy.

Investigators believe that the victim had gone to the suspect’s residence to confront them, after a member of their family had been shot by the suspect the day before with an airsoft-type gun says Corporal Chris Manseau, media relations officer for the Vancouver island RCMP When the victim arrived, the suspect allegedly went into their residence and returned with a weapon that is believed to have been used on the victim, causing them serious injuries.

While en route police learned that the victim had been taken to a local hospital by witnesses who were concerned for his health and well-being. The victim had suffered serious injuries to his body and was in need of immediate medical assistance.

When police arrived at the scene the suspect was arrested without incident, and the residence was secured. A search warrant for the residence was drafted and later executed. Investigators were searching for evidence of both events.

The investigation into this incident continues and it appears that the suspect and victim were known to each other, and there is no risk to the public. Port Hardy RCMP front line members are currently speaking with witnesses, and are asking those who have information to come forward.

The suspect has been remanded in custody until their next court appearance on April 19th 2021.

Anyone with information about this incent is asked to contact the Port Hardy RCMP at 250-949-6335
