A man is in hospital after being targeted by a group of vigilantes in Dawson Creek.

On July 12, 2023, at around 9:45 p.m., Dawson Creek RCMP received a report that a man was being targeted and attacked by vigilantes near a local business on the Dangerous Goods Route.

On July 13, 2023, at around 6:45 a.m., Dawson Creek RCMP received another report of a man being assaulted at the intersection of 225 and Highway 97 South in Arras.

Investigators determined that the victim in both incidents was the same 20-year-old man. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Police are actively investigating those incidents and the nature of those attacks on the victim. Initial information indicates that the victim was targeted as a result of unsubstantiated rumors posted on social media.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700.
