Suspects sought after road rage attack on Kamloops bridge

Red Bridge road rage attack

Kamloops Mounties are looking for suspects involved in a road rage assault early Monday morning. 

Police were called at about 3 a.m. to the Red Bridge near Lorne Street in response to an assault on a maintenance worker. 

According to police, two men in what is described as an older “dirty” SUV were speeding down the bridge southbound. 

The men are alleged to have become involved in a verbal altercation with a road-crew worker who was repairing potholes. 

According to police, the men got out of their vehicle and one tried to take the workers shovel. During the struggle, the worker was punched hard enough to lose consciousness and fall. 

The two men then sped off southbound, police said, and the worker was taken to hospital. 

The suspects are described as male, possibly South Asian or Indigenous, and six feet tall. One was wearing all black while the other might have been wearing a white tracksuit. 

The vehicle is a “dirty” sports utility vehicle, possibly beige and either late 1990s or early 2000s model. There is an "N" on the lower right back corner above the bumper.   

RCMP are asking anyone with information to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
