Busy night for local police

General Duty officers with the Prince George RCMP were kept busy overnight, responding to 31 calls between 7 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday.

During that time police received a variety of calls that required plenty of resources.  Here are a few examples of the calls for service:

  • At 10 p.m., the Prince George RCMP responded to a disturbance on the 1900 block of Third Avenue in Prince George.  Members attended and heard a woman yelling for help.  Officers entered the residence and located the woman suffering from non-life threatening injuries.  A 57-year-old man was arrested, held in custody overnight and will attend court later today.
  • At approximately 2 a.m., police responded to a report of a stolen Ford F-250 pickup from an address on Abbott Street.  A few minutes later, the vehicle was briefly spotted on 17th Avenue, before being located abandoned near Carney Street and Tenth Avenue a few minutes later.  The suspect is still at large.
  • At 2:55 a.m., police received a report of a commercial alarm at a business on Gautier Road, off Highway 16 West.  Officers including a police dog service team attended the area.  A 25-year-old woman, who recently here from Kamloops, was arrested near the scene and is currently in custody.  Investigators believe the woman was not acting alone.
  • At approximately 5 a.m., police were called to the area of Tyner Boulevard and 15th Avenue for a report of a man with apparent mental health concerns.  Officers located a naked 40-year-old man in the area showing signs of ‘excited delirium.’  The man was erratic and violent towards members.  Officers were able to control the man until paramedics were able to assist.  The man was transported to hospital for further treatment.
  • Just before 6 a.m., the Prince George RCMP received another report of a commercial alarm at the same business on Gautier Road, off Highway 16 West.  Several police officers, including a police dog service team attended the area and arrested a 27-year-old man from Kelowna.  A second male suspect fled the area in a grey truck, likely stolen.  Neither the suspect nor the truck have been located as of yet.
