On July 28 at 2:30 p.m. the Vanderhoof RCMP were dispatched to a report of a deliberate attempt to run over a pedestrian at the A&W restaurant in Vanderhoof.

The investigation revealed that a confrontation had occurred in the parking lot of the A&W, which ended with one of the male suspects driving his car deliberately at the other and striking him with the vehicle.

The male suspect fled the scene prior to police attendance.

Through the investigation the Vanderhoof RCMP were able to identify the male suspect and made attempts to locate the vehicle.

While the Vanderhoof RCMP where still investigating that incident, a call of a disturbance on Spruce Street was received where it was alleged that several people had been assaulted, and based on the description provided, the Vanderhoof RCMP determined that the same male suspect as the earlier incident was responsible.

While en route to the disturbance call, the Vanderhoof members were able to locate the vehicle as it fled the area.

The male suspect was taken into custody without incident.

The male suspect, a 32 year old Vanderhoof resident has been charged with 11 counts total including: 2 counts of assault with a weapon, fleeing the scene of an accident, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, 3 counts of uttering threats, two counts of assault and 2 counts of breach.

The victim in the A&W restaurant incident originally refused any medical attention but has since sought out medical treatment for his injuries.

Pending the official notification of his injuries, the Vanderhoof RCMP will consider laying the more serious charges.
