Around 9:20 a.m. on Oct. 5, Terrace RCMP responded to a report of a man assaulting another man and a woman. Police located and arrested a man as part of their investigation.

The man was released on a Promise to Appear in Court and other conditions. He was arrested again on Oct. 7 for breaching no-contact, no-go conditions and subsequently held for court.

Nothing obvious was stolen. Both owners declined having the RCMP Forensic Identification Unit assess their vehicles for evidence, opting to deal with the damage as soon as possible instead.

Impaired driving

A woman had her vehicle impounded for 30 days following a traffic stop on Substation Avenue.

Around 12:30 a.m., Saturday Oct. 5, Terrace RCMP stopped a green car after police checks indicated its owner did not have a valid license. After talking to the driver, police performed roadside breath tests which registered fail readings.

The woman received a 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound under the Motor Vehicle Act, as well as a violation ticket for no driver’s license.

Another traffic complaint led to an impaired driver being located early Sunday morning.
