Police seek tips on fishing spot assault

Oceanside RCMP are looking for help from the public in their attempt to find out who was responsible for a reported assault.

Sergeant Darrell Robertson said the incident took place on Aug. 21, when a 17-year-old youth was assaulted while he was fishing along the banks of the Little Qualicum River.

Robertson said the young man was hit five or six times in the face by a male who he described as being between 17 and 19 years of age, wearing ablack ball cap, red, sleeveless T-shirt and black shorts. He noted the person believed to be responsible for the assault is thought to frequent the popular fishing spot.

The suspect in the case was driving a two-door, white Volkswagen Rabbit, possibly a 2004 to 2007 model which was described as being clean and in good shape. The car had a ‘N’ sticker on the back bumper.

 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
