A Prince Rupert man faces charges after an alleged altercation with a grocery store worker in Terrace earlier this month.

Gordon Pagens, 20, has been charged with theft, assault, and three counts of breach of probation, said police in a release Aug. 21.

On August 5, the Loss Prevention Officer of Save On Foods was allegedly assaulted by a man he arrested for theft, said police.

The man then reached for a knife in a sheath at his waist, at which point another store worker stepped in and assisted the Loss Prevention Officer to restrain the man, the release continued.

Police took custody of the man, who was on conditions to not be in possession of weapons, including knives, and seized the knife, said the release.

Officers also seized from the man a lighter, ear bud style headphones, a key, and a knife that the man had stated were stolen from a semi truck/trailer parked in the industrial area of Terrace that he was sleeping in, said police.

If these items belong to you, contact Const. Matt Anderson at the Terrace RCMP detachment.
