Police in southern BC are asking residents to be kind following an unfortunate incident in Trail this week.
According to RCMP, on Sunday at 6:56 pm, officers responded to the 4000 block of Casino Road for reports of an alleged assault.
Upon arrival, officers learned that a 51-year-old man had been shoveling snow when he was approached by his 44-year-old neighbour. The neighbour became upset, claiming the man was shoveling snow onto his property.
The neighbour allegedly confronted the victim and punched him several times before the confrontation ended.
Thankfully, no one was injured during the incident. The man was located by police and given a verbal warning about the assault.
"The 44-year-old man could still be charged with Assault contrary to Section 266 of the Criminal Code if the victim decides to pursue it," said Sgt. Wicentowich. "The RCMP will retain this information in its police records for a lengthy period of time and can revisit laying charges at a later time."
Be nice to your neighbours!
