Oceanside RCMP have identified both people in the video surveillance footage released on Feb. 8 and thank the community for their assistance.
Police continue to investigate and there is no public safety risk, according to Sgt. Shane Worth.
Oceanside RCMP have released video of what appears to be a man assaulting a woman outside of a Parksville business.
Police hope to identify the victim and offender in the Jan. 26 incident, which occurred in the 400 block of Island Highway East, according to a media release by RCMP.
In the video, the man is wearing grey sweat pants, a white t-shirt with two black logos on the front and a large, black logo on the back. He is also wearing a black backward facing baseball hat.
The woman has medium length dark hair and was wearing dark clothing and light brown fur-lined boots. Both people appear to be in their 30’s, according to RCMP.
“The Oceanside RCMP have not received any direct reports from the woman and wish to identify and speak with her so we can confirm her safety and determine what occurred between her and the man,” said Sgt. Shane Worth.
Anyone able to identify either person can contact the Oceanside RCMP at (250) 248-6111.
