Eight year-old assaulted at Pomeroy Sport Centre

The RCMP was called to the Pomeroy Sport Centre on Thursday Dec. 1 in response to a report of an assault. An eight year-old girl was allegedly assaulted in a public washroom.

The RCMP conducted an investigation and a male youth was arrested. The male, who cannot be named as he is a youth, has been charged with assault causing bodily harm. The male is currently in RCMP custody.


The eight year-old girl was taken to the Fort St Joh Hospital where she was assessed and released with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are still investigating this incident but don't believe it is connected to the two incidents in November in Camarlo Park.
