Man in hospital after weekend stabbing

From Jan. 14-20, Terrace RCMP responded to approximately 194 calls for service. Of those calls, 78 were from this past weekend.

Below are some highlights from the Friday to Sunday files:

Arrested for fighting

Three were arrested following a Friday fight. Around 5:30 p.m., RCMP received a report that two people were fighting, with a third person on the ground, near the public library on the 4600 block of Park Ave. An officer was already on scene and interjected, which caused one man to flee from police.

The other person involved in the fight was intoxicated and resisted arrest, but was apprehended. The man reported on the ground was intoxicated and passed out; he was arrested and lodged in a cell to safely sober up.

Shortly after on Kalum St., police located the man who initially fled. He was aggressive towards the officers and resisted arrest. He was also lodged in a cell to sober up and to prevent further offenses.

Vehicle break-in, drug paraphernalia found

A vehicle parked in the 4600 block of Lazelle Ave. for the season was broken into and drug paraphernalia was discovered inside. On Jan. 19, the owner reported that he returned to find that his car had its side lock broken and ignition panel loose. A naloxone kit, sharps container, blanket and pillow were also found. Police seized the paraphernalia.

Man stabbed, woman arrested

A woman was arrested after police were called to a stabbing Friday night. Around 7:10 p.m., Terrace RCMP received a 911 call that a man has been stabbed at an address on West Kalum Rd. Police arrived and located one man suffering from a wound to his arm. He was taken to the hospital. The woman was held in police custody and later released with a court date.

Vehicle stolen from parking lot

On Jan. 19, a man returned to a parking lot Saturday morning to find his vehicle gone and reported it to police. The stolen black 2014 Jeep YJ, BCL GH336C was taken from the lot on the 4300 block of Lakelse Ave. at some point overnight. Police are still investigating.

Domestic disturbances

Police received four reports related to domestic occurrences over the weekend. Of those reports, two men were arrested for assault. One of those men was also breaching no-contact orders.

Sobering up safely

Approximately 18 people spent part of their weekend sobering up with police.

About 16 men and two women were lodged to regain their sobriety between Friday and Sunday. Arrests were made for offenses, including fighting in public, trespassing, mischief/loss of enjoyment to property, being intoxicated in public by liquor or drugs, and cause of disturbance.

Calls were received for the 4400, 4600 and 4700 block of Lakelse Ave., 4600 block of Park Ave., 4700 block of Haugland Ave., 4600 and 4500 block of Greig Ave., 4600 block of Keith Ave., and other locations.
