On Saturday at around 3 a.m. police were called to and apartment building in the downtown Trail area for a report of an assault. Police arrived to find a male reporting to be the victim of an assault with a large wooden stick. The female suspect was located inside the shared apartment and was arrested for assault with a weapon. The suspect was then transported to a family member’s home and released on a Promise To Appear with conditions attached.

With the weather patterns over the past week changing as rapidly as they do there were multiple motor vehicle accidents over the past week.

No major injuries reported but police would like to remind all drivers and pedestrians that the changing weather of warmer temperatures in the day and still freezing at night, makes for very slippery road conditions.

Police were called to multiple attempts of break and enter to garages in the East Trail area since Saturday. Each time access is attempted but nothing as of yet has been noticed to be missing. Numerous thefts from motor vehicles were reported over the weekend as well. Police request that residents of all areas be aware of their neighbourhood and the people in it, as well as to contact police if they see any strange activity at odd hours of the day.

On Monday police were called to a West Trail street where a vehicle had collided with two parked cars. The reported driver of the vehicle was spotted leaving the scene stating that he did not have a driver’s licence.

Based on the descriptions provided by witnesses the police were able to locate the suspect at their residence near the crash scene. The suspected driver was detained for investigational purposes and the police are continuing their investigation at this time.
