Police are looking for video and witnesses following an early morning report of a break-in and weapons assault.

Today, (Nov. 7, 2022), around 5:45 a.m., Kamloops RCMP officers were called to the 1300-block of Pine Crescent where a person observed fresh footprints leading to a home under construction.

“The property owner followed the footsteps and located a man inside the residential property,” said Corp. Crystal Evelyn.

“According to the report, a struggle occurred, followed by a brief chase, during which the suspect allegedly struck the victim in the head with a blunt tool.”
