Nakusp RCMP files: fight in Fauquier, truck hit at Halcyon

The latest from the Nakusp RCMP includes an altercation in Fauquier and a hit and run at Halcyon hot springs.

Assaults in Fauquier still being investigated

An altercation at the rest stop at the Fauquier ferry landing between two women that involved bear spray and ended in injuries is still being investigated by police.

On Sept. 20, Nakusp RCMP were called to a reported assault where both women were injured and needed medical assistance.

At this point the Nakusp RCMP aren’t releasing any further details, and because no charges have been laid by the Crown (police are recommending charges of assault against one woman and assault with a weapon against the other), no names can be released.

Truck damaged by hit

A vehicular hit and run at Halcyon Hot Springs on Sept. 21 left a Toyota Tacoma truck with a damaged rear window and canopy. The truck was hit while parked at the hot springs, and it’s likely a larger vehicle caused the damage. Police are asking anyone with information to call the Nakusp RCMP at 250-265-3677 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
