Prince Rupert RCMP seek public assistance on threats investigation
On Friday, the RCMP responded to a call for assistance from a group of young people who were playing baseball on the field at Charles Hays on Prince Rupert Boulevard.
As they were playing, a male approached the group and began acting in a strange manner, at one point allegedly telling the group "I'm gonna hurt you sooner or later"
At that point, the group becoming alarmed at his behaviour, left the area of the school and contacted the RCMP.
During the course of their response to the call, officers could not find the man in question.
The detachment is now turning to the public as they are seek more information on the incident.
The RCMP have released further details on the case, as well as an image of the man in question.
Should residents have more information or recognize the image of the person of interest, they are asked the local detachment at 250-627-0700 or through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
