The house was on 96 Avenue between 100 and 102 Street.
Based on descriptions from residents, a 50 year old suspect was apprehended soon after and was arrested and taken into custody. He will appear before a judge in court today, with recommended charges of three counts of Assault With a Weapon, Assault, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Uttering Threats and Mischief.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the incident, and RCMP say local residents were not at risk, as it seemed to be a targeted act. It’s suspected alcohol was a factor.
“Any time a person drinks and drives it is a danger,” says Corporal Jodi Shelkie “But when an impaired person drives his vehicle into a home and attempts to run over pedestrians, it is a situation where one or more people could have been seriously injured or even killed.”
If you have information on this crime please contact the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
