Full out search results in arrest of Harrison Mills man

RCMP have charged a Harrison Mills man with assault with a weapon, following a late night incident up Sts’ailes Forest Service Road near Agassiz.

A woman called police for help with a situation at about 2 a.m. on Sept. 8. When police arrived, they found her seriously injured.

She was transported to hospital, and Agassiz RCMP began “an exhaustive search” for the suspect with the help of the Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team, the Lower Mainland Integrated Dog Services and Air Services.

A vehicle was found in the same area, thought to be owned by the suspect, who is known to the victim.

The suspect, who is already known to police, was arrested at about 1 a.m. on Sept. 9, without incident.

“These types of calls are very high risk for all the members involved,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  “The coordinated effort of all involved contributed to the suspect being arrested peacefully.”

John Shaw, 37, was to appear in court on Sept. 12.
