RCMP look into alleged sex assault

The RCMP are not sure yet whether they will have enough evidence to proceed with charges in an alleged sex assault, which occurred in the early morning hours of Dec. 16 on the 2200 block of Lake Placid Road.

The victim called the RCMP at 4:30 a.m. She acknowledged going home from a nightclub with one male, then says another male in the residence assaulted her. She had been drinking and her recollection of the events of that night is "vague and blurry" according to police. All of the people involved in the case have been identified by police, who are continuing to investigate.

Vehicles broken into around Village

Police are reminding people never to leave valuables in sight in their vehicles after a string of vehicle break-ins on Dec. 16. The break-ins were reported on Chateau Boulevard, in Lot 1 and Seppo's Way, and in each case a window was broken to gain entry to the vehicle.

Various personal items were stolen from the vehicles such as purses, wallets and backpacks.

Police vehicles struck on highway

Two RCMP vehicles, one from Whistler and one from Squamish, were struck on Highway 99 last week in separate incidents. Both were responding to calls regarding vehicles that had gone into the ditch, and both were hit by vehicles that were travelling too fast, hit the vehicles in front of them and then hit the police vehicles.

The Squamish RCMP was responding to a call regarding a vehicle in the ditch on Dec. 16 at Highway 99 and the Culliton Creek.

A vehicle coming up the highway, a GMC Yukon, lost contrl and struck the pickup truck in front of it, then sideswiped the police vehicle on the side of the road. At that point, a third vehicle lost control and spun into the Yukon, almost hitting the police officer who had to dive into the ditch for safety. On investigation, the police determined that the SUV's tires were bald.

All of the vehicles had to be towed, and as they were waiting roadside yet another SUV approached, swerving into the southbound lane and back into the correct lane, narrowly missing another police officer and police vehicle.

The second similar incident was reported by the Whistler RCMP on Dec. 17, taking place at Highway 99 and the Callaghan Valley after a vehicle slid into the ditch.

The driver of the original vehicle, a 26-year-old from Burnaby, received a ticket for not driving with winter tires
