28 year Old Prince Rupert male in custody to face numerous charges following violent assault

Prince Rupert Mounties have relayed some details related to an incident last Sunday night on the city's east side which left three people requiring hospital attention with serious injuries. 

The call for assistance came in to the local detachment in the late evening hours of Sunday, October 24th, sending officers to an apartment building on 11th Avenue East. 

Upon arrival the responding officers were faced with a man blocking their way and refusing to move or comply with their directions, which resulted in the first of many charges on the night, that of obstructing police officers.

Through further investigation and interviewing of witnesses, police determined that the three victims had left the building previous to their arrival and later had been transported to Prince Rupert Regional Hospital for treatment.

With the incident somewhat clearer at that point, Prince Rupert RCMP then arrested and charged the detained male suspect at the scene with a range of alleged offences. 

Among them  one count of aggravated assault, three charges of assault with a weapon (reported as an axe and a hammer), two counts of assault causing bodily harm, one count of failure to comply and one count of obstruction.

The male who has been yet to be named has since been transported to the Prince George Correction Centre, where he awaits further action from the Courts.
