The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is looking for video and witnesses following an early morning report of a break-in and weapon’s assault.

On Nov. 7, 2022, around 5:45 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers attended the 1300-block of Pine Crescent where a person observed fresh footprints leading to a home under construction.

The property owner followed the footsteps and located a man inside the residential property, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. According to the report, a struggle occurred, followed by a brief chase, during which the suspect allegedly struck the victim in the head with a blunt tool.

The victim received non-life threatening injuries. Tools are believed to have been stolen during the break and enter.

Anyone who witnessed, has video, or information related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-40098.
