Assault and the Bandit: Yellowknife RCMP

The Bandit was caught

The Yellowknife RCMP have been busy and productive over the past few days.

First, this past Monday, the streets of downtown Yellowknife were rocked with a free for all fight.

Police say at approximately 8:45pm, they received several complaints about a brawl in progress at 50th Street and Franklin Avenue.

The Mounties attended the scene and found four women and a man engaged in a assault.

All five people involved were arrested and put into custody.

They have been released with a Promise to Appear in Court on October 17th.


Then, the Yellowknife RCMP had a bandit running around  breaking into Yellowknife properties  stealing money and valuables.

It started on the August long weekend, when the male suspect gained entry into the Military Family Resource Center on 54th Street.

The culprit left with a safe full of cash and valuables.

Then, on August the 7th, the same bandit gained illegal entry into the Fat Fox Cafe on 50th street.

In that heist, the thief stole a signicant amount of cash.

However, the bandit was not done.

In the early morning hours of Monday August the 14th, the perpetrator went again to the Fat Fox Cafe.

He ripped off tip and donation money from the business.

The thief was caught and arrested and charged and appeared in court yesterday.

The bandit’s name has not been released.
