During the evening of Thursday, May 22, members from the Valemount RCMP responded to a 911 call from a female victim who was being attacked by her adult daughter while inside their residence located in the 900 block of 13th Avenue.

The victim barricaded herself in a bedroom along with her two children after her daughter went into an alcohol induced rampage as she trashed the inside of the house and came at the victim with a knife. As the victim tried to hold the bedroom door closed, the daughter stabbed at her foot trying to force her way in. Police quickly arrived on scene at which time the suspect was taken into custody. The victim was then taken to the local health center where she was treated for a serious cut to her foot. Thankfully, nobody else was hurt in this incident.

Criminal charges of Aggravated Assault and Assault with a Weapon were laid and the suspect was subsequently remanded in custody to appear in Prince George Provincial Court on May 26th. If found guilty of these offences, the suspect could be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding eighteen months.
