Double assault suspect in custody


One man is in custody and facing charges after two incidents that occurred back to back earlier this week.

On Monday August 7at approximately 6:15 a.m., the Prince George RCMP responded to a report of an assault and mischief on the 1900 block of Strathcona Avenue.  Initial indications were that a man had assaulted a woman and punctured the tires of her vehicle, before fleeing the area on foot.

While en route to the assault, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a possible stabbing on the 2300 block of Spruce Street, a short distance away from the initial call.

Police officers attended both locations.  Officers found a woman with minor injuries and a man suffering from what appeared to be multiple wounds from an edged weapon.  The male suspect had fled before police arrived.  All efforts to locate him were negative.

The 31-year-old male victim was transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries.  The woman did not require treatment.

On Tuesday August 8, warrant was issued for 25-year-old Trevor Lyndon Alexis of Williams Lake.  Alexis was located and arrested in Agassiz, at approximately 9:30 p.m. the same day.

Alexis has been remanded in custody and is facing charges of assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace, assault, mischief under $5,000.

Alexis is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court on August 17th, 2017.
