VERNON - Mounties say a Salmon Arm man was attacked through his car window last week while stopped at an intersection.

The unusual assault occurred last Wednesday, Feb. 11, around 9:15 p.m. in front of the Green Valley Motel on 25 Avenue.

A 26-year-old Salmon Arm man was stopped at the traffic light when a man confronted him for unknown reasons. 

“It appears the man on foot attempted to assault the driver through his open window,” RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk says. 

A female accomplice then struck the back of the driver’s truck with a metal pipe.

“The driver exited his vehicle to confront the two and he was assaulted by both suspects,” Molendyk says. “The woman struck him in the head several times with the metal pipe before leaving on foot toward the Green Valley Motel.”

The extent of the man’s injuries are not known. Police were unable to locate the two suspects and are asking assistance from anyone who may have witnessed the assault to contact them with any information that may help identify the individuals.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
