Is this the spitting image of a saliva assault suspect?

Police say a man spat at an employee in North Kamloops after the employee asked the man’s friend to stop skateboarding on the property.

The Kamloops RCMP is asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect from a spitting incident — which can be an assault — earlier this week.
