Burns Lake RCMP are looking for a man and woman involved in an assault case. On Thursday at noon, Corporal Jack Ashford says a report came in of a woman being assaulted by a man 10 kilometres east of Burns Lake outside of a red car.

“And then this male took this woman and put her in the car, we understand that this couple was travelling together, the car stopped, and they got out, and started to assault her and pushed her back into the car.”

Ashford says RCMP made patrols of the area, asked for help from neighbouring detachments, and used trucker’s radios to locate the couple. Those efforts have not found anything, and they are asking the public to keep an eye out for the couple in the red car. RCMP are treating this case as an assault, not an abduction.
