Man stabbed during fight at Kamloops beach party
One man is in hospital and another is in police custody after a beach party turned violent last night (April 27).
Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said Mounties were called to a residence on the North Shore after a man showed up suffering from stab wounds to the back of his neck.
The victim said he was involved in a consensual fight at a beach party near Centennial Park in Westsyde when his combatant — believed to be a 21-year-old man whose identity has not been made public — stabbed him.
Police arrested the suspect at his home without incident.
Aird said the alleged stabber will appear before a justice of the peace later today to answer to a proposed charge of assault with a weapon.
JOYRIDE LEADS TO CHARGES
"Driving like an idiot" while on a booze run will leave an unlicenced Albertan significantly lighter in the pocketbook, police say.
Just before 7 p.m. yesterday (April 27), Kamloops Mounties received a number of reports about a white Buick wreaking havoc on Valleyview roads.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said callers stated the driver "was driving the vehicle like an idiot, went through a red light and was speeding."
The Buick was spotted entering the parking lot at a Valleyview motel.
"Police attended and spoke to the vehicle owner and determined he had been in the shower when his unlicenced son had taken the vehicle for a drive to a liquor store for booze," Aird said.
The joyriding son was handed tickets for a number of infractions, including driving without a licence, failing to stop at a red light and speeding against highway sign.
