Houston RCMP respond to assaults

Houston RCMP responded to several assaults last week.

A man who was assaulted Friday, June 29 at his Hagman Crescent home has been unable to tell police who attacked him.

Houston RCMP arrived at the scene at 10:25 after an ambulance had already taken the victim to the Smithers hospital, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police say a forensic team gathered evidence at the scene, and the case is still under investigation.

A man suffered a black eye and scratches to his face on Saturday, July 1 after a woman  attacked him with a house cat.

The woman is alleged to have thrown the cat, which she owned, after the man asked her to stop making lewd gestures to the animal that he found offensive.

She is also alleged to have strangled the cat to death soon afterwards.

Houston RCMP say the woman has been arrested and will likely face assault and animal cruelty charges.

A woman was apparently punched, kicked, and may have had her wrist broken July 2 in her Hagman Crescent home by a man who was out on bail conditions not to visit her.

The man, who is well known to police,  has been arrested and charged with assault.
