Hatchet with a side of mayo
A jar of mayonnaise and a hatchet.
Those were the weapons believed to have been used in what police are calling a “drug-related assault” at a North Kamloops home this week.
Just before 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17, a 27-year-old man and his 54-year-old roommate called 911 to report an assault in their apartment in the 900-block of Eighth Street.
Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said several police cars set up a perimeter, but were unable to track down any suspects.
“The younger roommate, who had a cut on the crown of his head, stated that the suspects came into his room and threw a jar of mayonnaise at him,” he said, adding the victim was less than co-operative with police.
“The victim stated that he pushed past the thugs and got hit in the head with something.”
The initial call came in as a hatchet attack.
According to Learned, the victim knew his attackers but said he did not want to pursue charges.
Learned said investigators believe the attack was related to the drug trade.
