Man injured in early-morning gas-station assault
Mounties have the surveillance video — now they want witnesses to an early-morning attack at a Kamloops gas station.
On Friday, Oct. 12, just before 6 a.m., a man was assaulted by a man and woman at the Salish Esso, at Halston Avenue and Salish Road.
The attack left him with a serious knee injury, with possible torn tendons, that required a visit to Royal Inland Hospital.
Police say the victim reported being harassed and bumped inside the Esso by a male, who then withdrew money from the Royal Bank ATM.
The victim said he left the store and got into his vehicle, which was parked behind a red Honda Accord being driven by his assailants.
At that point, a female got out of the Honda, slammed her hands on the hood of the victim’s vehicle, then opened his door and began swinging her hands at him, striking him in the temple area.
The victim said he pushed her away with his feet when the male started attacking before intervened and pulled the male suspect away.
Mounties have surveillance video, have identified the female suspect and would like to talk to anyone who may have witnessed the incident. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
