Assault Sends One to Hospital
Prince George, B.C. – One man is in hospital following an apparent targeted assault on a busy Prince George street.
RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says the incident occurred just before 5 p.m. yesterday afternoon.
He says Mounties came across the male victim walking along the 3000 block of 10th Avenue and noticed he appeared to be suffering from one or more injuries.
Douglass says he was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries which appeared to be caused by a blunt object.
Police note the victim is well known to police and was not cooperative. A home in the 2900 block of 10th Avenue was checked for safety and to ensure there were no more victims. A police dog search failed to turn up any suspects.
Police are treating this as a targeted attack related to the drug trade and say the public is not at risk.
The victim has two arrest warrants and was taken into custody after he was released from hospital.
