  • Five Arrested After Chief Del Manak Assaulted At Chantel Moore Memorial

Five people have been arrested after Chief Manak was assaulted at a memorial event at the B.C. Legislature on Saturday.

Just after 2 p.m. a female approached Chief Manak from behind while he was attending a memorial event honouring Chantel Moore at the B.C. Legislature. The woman assaulted Chief Manak after a blanketing ceremony by pouring a liquid on him. She then moved away from the area. Chief Manak, who was attending the memorial at the invitation of Chantel Moore’s mother, was not physically harmed. The assault was captured on video.

Officers in the area then approached the suspect. At that time a group surrounded the suspect and then surrounded officers. Five people were taken into custody.

Those who were involved are not believed to have been involved in organizing the Chantel Moore memorial event.

There were no injuries.

This file is still under investigation. If you have information about this incident and have not yet spoken with officers, please call our Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1.
