Two bystanders helped arrest a suspect who punched an RCMP member in the head during an altercation Friday.
Police responded at about 3:15 p.m. to a call of an erratic man running into traffic and hitting car windows on the 400 block of Seymour Street.
The 37-year-old suspect, who is well known to police, was taken to hospital and is being treated for a drug overdose.
The RCMP member received medical treatment as a result of his injuries.
The RCMP would like to speak with the two bystanders who assisted the RCMP member. Without their assistance, the RCMP member may have received more significant injuries during this attack, said S/Sgt. Edward Preto.
Anyone who witnessed the assault is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 in reference to file number 2017-25351.
