A Kamloops retail employee was spit on after asking a person to stop skateboarding in the store.

On Monday, March 1, around 4:35 p.m., Kamloops RCMP responded to the report at a store on the 700 block of Tranquille Road, according to an RCMP press release. RCMP do not identify the business.

He is described as a Caucasian male with dark hair and facial hair. He was wearing dark clothing at the time.
