Merritt RCMP Respond to an Alleged Domestic Assault


One man is in custody after an alleged domestic assault over the weekend.

It was just one of over seventy incidents Merritt RCMP responded to this past weekend according to Staff Sgt. Lorne Wood who updated Q101 on the incident.

“There was an allegation of domestic assault out in Lower Nicola, in which a man is said to have assaulted his pregnant girlfriend or common-law,” said Wood.

When RCMP members arrived on the scene, the suspect was seen running.

“He (the suspect) fled into the woods. We had a police dog out there and tracked him for about an hour and ended up catching him.” Wood added.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
