Oceanside RCMP investigate a residence on Ford Street in Parksville Thursday morning after being called to the home Wednesday night.

Police converge on Ford Street residence in Parksville

Assault allegedly occurred Wednesday night; no arrests have been made by Thursday afternoon

Police were called to a home at the end of Ford Street in Parksville Wednesday night after “witnesses heard smashing glass and screaming coming from the residence,” according to Oceanside RCMP.

Cpl. Jesse Foreman said when Mounties arrived at the scene at 9:30 p.m. there appeared to have been an altercation between a 23-year-old man and 28-year-old woman, who live at the residence, and two unidentified men.

He said the 23-year-old man’s arm appeared to be injured.

According to witnesses, Foreman said the two unidentified men were seen fleeing from the residence along Ford Street to Parksville’s City Hall on Jensen Street.

“This wasn’t a random act,” said Foreman, adding that it is “unclear” whether the victims — the man and woman who live at the residence — know the men who allegedly attacked them.

Foreman confirmed this incident is “not a home invasion.”

He said police are investigating the suspects and what type of motive they may have had.

On Thursday morning the residence was cordoned off with police tape, RCMP were investigating the scene and the home’s front window was shattered. As of Thursday afternoon, there were no arrests.
