The Revelstoke RCMP are seeking help in finding a man who assaulted a woman in Farwell area on New Year’s Eve.

According to the RCMP, a woman was assaulted while attempting to get into her vehicle in an alleyway on the 1600 block of Third Street West at around 9 p.m. on Dec. 31.

“The suspect grabbed the victim’s arms as she opened the driver side door of her vehicle,” stated Cpl. Thomas Blakney. “As the victim tried to get away from the suspect’s grasp, she fell to her knees. The suspect then pushed the victim from behind in an attempt to push her to the ground.

“Fortunately, a neighbour had startled the suspect, who fled in an easterly direction down the back alley.”
