Assaulted driver hits vehicles to escape

On January 30th at 12:30 a.m., Cranbrook RCMP were called to a parking lot in the 2200 block of 3rd Street South where a brown Dodge van with a ladder on top, was seen to collide with multiple vehicles in that lot then drive away.

The police located the driver who reported to police that he was being assaulted by two stocky males who flagged him over then repeatedly punched him. The driver of the van escaped the assault by driving his van away while being assaulted and collided with other vehicles in the parking lot, while attempting to escape. The victim suffered minor injuries and was not hospitalized.

One attacker was described as a Caucasian male, 36-38 years old; husky or stocky build; short dark brown hair. The second attacker was only described as being a Caucasian male with a similar hair style as the first attacker. The police are looking for anyone who saw this incident or may have information.

If anyone has any additional information about this or any other crime they can call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or East Kootenay Crimestoppers (1-800-222-TIPS)
