On May 11, 2022 at 10:34 pm, Fort St John RCMP received a request to assist BC Ambulance Service with an intoxicated male in the area of 96th Street/94th Avenue, who was refusing medical treatment due to a very high level of intoxication and walked away from ambulance attendants.
While police were enroute, another report of a man stealing a skateboard and then threatening to strike the owner with the skateboard was received in the area of 100th Street/ 95th Avenue. The suspect male departed the immediate area on foot.
When police arrived, the front line police officer was waved down by a youth who said they had just been robbed, at knife point, by a man who took their bag and cellphone.
The man was located a short distance away and it was determined it was the same individual that was reported in each of the three incidents.
Trenton Fox was arrested, attended court and is facing criminal charges for Assault, Robbery, Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose and Failure to Comply with Probation Order. Fox was remanded until June 2, 2022 when he will reappear in court.
