Two arrested following assault

Two people have been arrested following an assault last week.

On Thursday, August 11, just after 5:30 p.m., Prince George RCMP received a report of an assault that had just taken place at a commercial dwelling unit on the 900-block of Victoria Street. When police officers arrived at the location they quickly located the victim, who was suffering from multiple serious injuries.

Through their investigation, police determined there were two suspects, both of whom are known to police.

“Police identified the suspects as 47-year-old Kerridge Lowley and 29-year-old Dakota Keewatin,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations officer for the Prince George RCMP. “Within an hour, investigators located the suspects and the two men were arrested without incident.”

The B.C. Prosecution Service approved one count of aggravated assault against each suspect. Dakota Keewatin will remain in custody until his next court appearance; Kerridge Lowley will remain in the community on a release order.

The victim received medical treatment and is recovering. The file remains under investigation.
