Terrace RCMP received 146 calls over the long weekend, which is higher than average, but down from long weekends in past years.

Some of the incidents police dealt with included a loud party on Kenworth St. where a fridge was lit on fire and tossed off the porch. Police shut the party down.

Police heard a woman screaming for help so they booted in the door and saw a man assaulting a woman, who had visible injuries. He attempted to flee and a police officer chased and caught the man. He fought the police officer.

A second police officer attended and they regained control of the man. Charges were forwarded to Crown Counsel and the 26-year-old man was held for court.

Officers saw a 14-year-old boy in breach of a curfew condition of his recognizance inside of McDonald’s. He was arrested and released to his mother. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel.

A camper was destroyed by fire at the Red Sands Forestry Site on May 18. Nobody was injured.

It was unclear how the fire started.
