19 year old male arrested in connection with Dawson Creek serious assault

As they were only “mere” acquaintances, RCMP had to conduct an investigation to determine his identity with certainty. He was arrested on October 3, and remains in police custody awaiting his bail hearing. 

RCMP has not confirmed whether the arrest is in connection with a previously reported serious assault in the Canalta area, when a female was assaulted in her vehicle on September 9.  She was taken to hospital by a Good Samaritan.
