On February 24, 2023, at about 1:30pm, the Fort St John RCMP received a report of a man and a woman, who were fighting on the 10600 block of 100th Avenue, Fort St John. The two individuals were each walking two dogs and were yelling and wrestling with each other in a parking lot.
Once Fort St John RCMP front-line officers attended, the man yelled at police, released control of his two dogs and charged a police officer while displaying a weapon. Officers arrested and gained control of the man but were bitten by the loose dogs in the process.
Noah Almond was arrested for Assault, Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose and Obstruct a Peace Officer and was held for court where he was later released on a Release Order with a future court date of March 20, 2023.
One front-line officers attended the hospital and was released.
