Kamloops RCMP are turning to the public to help identify a suspect in an alleged spitting assault earlier this month.
On Jan. 12, around 2:13 p.m., officers were called to a store on the 700-block of Tranquille Road after a report that someone in the store had been spit on by a patron who was asked to leave. The assailant then left on a bike.
The suspect in the assault is described as Indigenous, five-feet six inches in height, dressed in a blue Canucks sweater, jeans, and a black and white hat.
Police made patrols but were unable to locate him or identify him internally.
Const. Crystal Evelyn released a photo of a man who police would like to contact.
Anyone who can identify him is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 21-1297.
