Fort St. James RCMP responded to a number of interesting calls  last week.

On September 26, RCMP officers responded to a complaint a male was trying to cut his way into a house with a chainsaw at Yekooche.

The home was occupied by a relative of the male involved, and alcohol was a factor, according to the police.

The man was arrested without incident, but at the request of the complainant, no charges will be laid.

There was an assault at the Fort St. James Apartments on September 27.

Two females, one 18 and one 20, assaulted another female.

Charges will be recommended to crown in the case, and alcohol was again a factor in the incident.

Two youth were caught shooting rocks with slingshots at the townhouses on September 25.

Both youth were under 12 and there was no serious damage or injuries, however the officers did have a talk with the youth and their parents.

On September 26, there was mischief and vandalism done in the Fort Trailer Park. Unknown persons keyed a vehicle and smashed garden pots near a home.

Anyone with any information on this incident please call Crimestoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-8477 or call the local Fort St. James detachment at 996-8269.
