In news from the Slave Lake RCMP, a man is in custody after allegedly assaulting car wash staff with a lacrosse stick on May 23.
According to the release from Staff Sgt. John Spaans, a report came in from the Aquamax car wash in Slave Lake about the disturbance.
“It is alleged that the male entered the wash bay where he began throwing rocks and swinging the stick at staff members,” said Spaans.
Members of the public attempted to intervene, Spaans continued, assisted by staff members. Police were called and they arrested the 31-year-old. Charges are pending.
Spaans says the suspect’s motivations are unknown, but drugs and/or alcohol is suspected to be a factor.
