On Saturday, October 24th, Dawson Creek RCMP responded to a call reporting that kidnapping and aggravated assault had taken place.

Upon arrival, police learned that a man had been taken at gunpoint from the Taylor Pub to Dawson Creek – where he was beaten, sprayed with bear mace and stabbed in the legs.

The 31-year-old man managed to escape and ran to a nearby residence where he called for ambulance. The victim was then taken to hospital where he received medical treatment.

Police utilized police dog services and conducted a back track of the man – which resulted in locating the residence where the assault took place.

A thorough forensic examination was conducted on the property. RCMP say that the victim is not cooperating with them, and that is hindering the investigation.

Police can’t confirm right now if this incident is related to shots being fired in the 1500 block of 99th Ave. around midnight last night.

In that incident, a person approached a house and fired three shotgun rounds.

Ongoing investigation reveals that there was drug activity occurring in the neighbourhood where the shooting took place. Police are conducting a forensic examination on the house.

Three men were escorted from the building, all claiming that the house was targeted by mistake.
