A 30-year-old Kamloops man is in custody after police responded to a report of an attack in the downtown core early Tuesday morning (Nov. 26).
Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk said officers responded to Columbia Street and First Avenue at 1:48 a.m. after a man called to say he was attacked by a man with a knife. The victim was able to escape without injury and notify police.
Within minutes of arriving, officers used a police tracking dog to find a man matching the description of the suspect hiding in the area. He was arrested without incident,
Buliziuk said the man arrested is well known to police and will remain in custody pending further investigation. The Crown will determine if charges are laid.
CPl. Jodi Shelkie told KTW the two men do not know each other, adding that the incident was not drug-related.
