On September 20, 2020, at approximately 7:30 am, Norway House RCMP responded to a disturbance at a home in the community.
RCMP arrived and heard screaming and calls for help. The investigation led officers to a shed, where several people were locked inside and had been bear sprayed.
Officers broke the door and freed three females, aged 24, 28, 35, and a 49-year-old male. They were all provided first aid at the scene.
