January 18, 2017 - 11:47 AM

KAMLOOPS - Paramedics attended to pepper sprayed man in downtown Kamloops yesterday, but police aren’t sure what happened thanks to an unhelpful victim.

Police were called to an incident in front of the downtown library on Victoria Street and 5 Avenue around 6:10 p.m. yesterday, Jan. 17, by library staff after a man was pepper sprayed.

RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says when police arrived paramedics were already treating a 28-year-old man who’d been pepper sprayed.

The victim wouldn’t tell police what happened to him, but police don’t think the public should be worried.

“There’s no concern to public safety,” Shelkie says. “Nobody else was injured as far as we know.”
