Salmon Arm RCMP are recommending charges of assault causing bodily harm be laid after a incident in which a woman appears to have been thrown from a moving vehicle.

On Nov. 13, at approximately 6:20 p.m. police responded to a call that a woman needed help in the area of Auto Road.

A witness told police the door of a car in front of him opened and a woman fell out, hitting the side of his truck as she rolled down the street. The woman was ushered back into the car, but drove away from the scene before police arrived.

RCMP officers located the 44-year-old woman three hours later and had ambulance personnel attend to her injuries. The victim claimed to have been thrown from the car by another occupant of the vehicle.

Police say they have determined the identify of a male suspect and are recommending that Provincial Crown counsel charge him with assault causing bodily harm. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.

Laptop extortion

On Nov. 12 Salmon Arm RCMP responded to a complaint of a break and enter to a residence where a laptop was stolen. Police were able to quickly determine that this was a targeted attack. The incident occurred while there were two occupants in the residence, one of whom had borrowed money from the male suspect days earlier. The male suspect was demanding to be re-paid.

Police then executed a search warrant on another Salmon Arm residence and recovered the laptop along with other evidence pertaining to this crime.

A male suspect has been arrested and the Salmon Arm RCMP will be recommending charges to provincial Crown counsel which include break and enter and extortion.

Driver investigated

Salmon Arm RCMP responded to a rollover motor vehicle incident on 11th Avenue NE at 3:40 a.m. on Nov. 15. A male driver was located and was suffering from a gash to his head. He is being investigated for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
