Oceanside RCMP are looking to speak to anyone who may have witnessed an alleged assault on a child which occurred in Parksville on May 3, 2023.

At approximately 4:25 p.m. on May 3, 2023 Oceanside RCMP were called to a report of an assault near the intersection of Alberni Highway and Dunbar Way where a two-year-old child is believed to have been assaulted by a caregiver.
