On January 12, around 2:13 p.m., frontline officers attended a retail location on the 700-block of Tranquille Road after a man reported he had been spit on by a patron who was asked to leave. After the alleged assault, the suspect left on a bike. He was described as Indigenous, five-feet six inches in height, dressed in a blue Canucks sweater, jeans, and a black and white hat.

Police made patrols but were unable to locate the man or identify him internally.

The suspect’s photo is being released in hopes that the public can assist police in this investigation by identifying the man, said Constable Crystal Evelyn, Media Relations Officer for the Kamloops RCMP.

The suspect, or anyone who can identify him, is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 21-1297.
