File # 2016-27856
Police have arrested a local man wanted for several offences.
On Thursday June 8th, 2017, at approximately 1:30 PM, the Prince George RCMP located and arrested 29 year old Dustin Cecil MURRAY.
Officers attended an apartment building on the 2400 block of Upland Street specifically looking for MURRAY. The attendance of officers forced the suspect onto the roof of the building.
The officers requested the assistance of the RCMP’s Air 4 helicopter. The rotary aircraft was above the building within minutes, forcing the wanted man back into the building and into the custody of waiting officers.
MURRAY, a resident of Prince George, was wanted for the following Criminal Code offences:
- Assault (2 counts)
- Fail to Comply with Probation (4 counts)
These charges stem from an incident that occurred on September 1st, 2016 just before 1:00 PM. Police responded to a report of an assault in progress on Upland Street in Prince George. Officers attended and located an adult female victim, but the suspect, believed to be MURRAY, had fled the scene prior to arrival. MURRAY has also breached release conditions from previous Criminal Code investigations. MURRAY has a long history with police.
The Prince George RCMP would like to thank those persons that assisted with this investigation. Without the help from the public, investigations such as this one would not be nearly as successful.
