Valley man arrested after alleged assault on female
A local man is behind bars after his arrest for an alleged assault Tuesday morning near Duncan.
Police say the 23-year-old man, whose name hadn't been released, was busted without incident at about 8:30 a.m. in the Boys Road area.
Cpl. Krista Hobday, of North Cowichan/Duncan's RCMP detachment, said a patrol officer was given a description of the suspect after the alleged street assault against a female.
Assault details were not released.
The attending officer called the dog squad. Police containment between Boys Road and the Cowichan hospital happened while the dog unit tracked the suspect, and made the bust.
A weapon was not used in the alleged assault, Hobday said.
Possible charges were pending further RCMP investigation, and Crown's decision on the evidence.
