A 28-year-old man is set to appear in court at a date to be determined after enduring a crime spree in Prince George last night (Sept. 2).

According to RCMP, the suspect was seen trying to break into vehicles around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday along 400 block Douglas Street and when officers attempted the arrest, he resisted and wielded a knife.

Mounties eventually handcuffed the New Hazelton man without further incident, but was also believed to be intoxicated by drugs.

An investigation into the incident also led officers to believe the suspect was responsible for a series of tire slashing and unlawfully entering at least one home, all on the same street.

He was held in custody until he was sober, and was then released with documents to appear in court at a later date.

The BC Prosecution Service will be notified of the crime spree once the RCMP’s investigation is complete.

Police say if you were a victim from Tuesday’s string of incidents, you’re asked to call the Prince George detachment at 250-561-3300.

Anyone with more information is asked to call the RCMP as well, or can anonymously contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or online at
