Assault reports lead to charges

Three of four reports of domestic assaults in the Nass Valley over the Victoria Day long weekend have resulted in charges being approved against the alleged perpetrators last week.

Kenneth Green was charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and assault in relation to an incident in New Aiyansh.

Ryan Morven was charged with two counts of assault and two counts of attempting to choke to overcome resistance in relation to a New Aiyansh incident.

The pair appeared in provincial court here May 21 and were released on bail May 22.

Quentin Stevens was charged with forcible entry or forcible retainer and three counts of breach of conditions in relation to an incident in Greenville.

He was not released on bail and will remain in jail until his next court date.

Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP officer in charge Sgt. Donovan Tait would not provide any more details on the cases.

The three men are due back in court in the next two months.

Meanwhile, police continue to investigate the fourth incident.
