Pedestrian struck in crosswalk
A pedestrian was struck in a crosswalk at Third Avenue West and Fulton Street at 5:30 p.m on Dec. 9. They were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, and the driver was issued a violation ticket for driving without due care and attention.
This is the seventh pedestrian to be struck in a crosswalk in Prince Rupert in 2017. Six of those incidents occurred on Second Avenue West.

Overnight robbery on Sixth Street
The front window of an electronic store on Sixth Street West was broken into overnight on Dec. 5, and two pairs of headphones were stolen.

Suspected prowler actually delivery person
RCMP responded to a report of a possible prowler in the 1700 block of Kootenay Avenue on Dec. 7. When they arrived at the home, a package was found on the front doorstep. The caller thought that someone was lurking around the neighbourhood, but they were delivering a parcel to the caller’s home.
“For some reason, they thought it was suspicious… The complainant was relieved that there was no prowler and they received their parcel,” Corporal Devon Gerrits said.
Resident fined for loud music
Loud music was coming from a home on Raven Place at 11:30 p.m. Since the police had been called to the house two weeks earlier for another noise complaint, the person who lives there had already received a warning and was fined $200.
