A local man is forbidden from entering 7-11 after an assault on a clerk at the convenience store.
On March 31 at 8:22 p.m., a 22-year-old male went into the store to buy a lighter. When he couldn’t produce ID upon demand, he became angry and grabbed the clerk by the shirt.
The young man’s mother, who was with him, pulled him away and they both left the store.
Police were called and were able to identify the man from store video surveillance. He was known to them, located at his home and arrested for assault.
He will appear in court in Nelson on June 11 to answer to the charge. Until then he is to stay away from 7-11.

Staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital called the Nelson Police Department in the early morning hours of April 3 after spotting a male lying on the ground in their lower parking lot.
Police attended and found a drunk 23-year-old male lying on the cold concrete ground.
“The temperature was as low as four degrees overnight and he had been there for about five hours,” says a release issued by the NPD. “The intoxicated male felt he had a lot to deal with in his life and that was the spot where he wanted to be.”
Because he wouldn’t move to a warmer, safer location and was visibly shivering, he was arrested for public intoxication and held in custody until he could properly care for himself.
He was released without charges.
