Police have issued a plea for the public's help after a woman was assaulted with a knife at a house party in Fort St. John last October.

Fort St. John RCMP say the woman was assaulted around 4 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2018, during a party in the 9600 block of 102 Avenue. She was taken to the hospital for medical care.

“It is likely that someone else who was at the party has information about what happened and possibly knows who assaulted the victim,” said Cst. Chad Neustaeter in a news release.

“Our goal is to have anyone with further information about this serious assault to come forward.”

RCMP only released details about the incident on Jan. 3, and weren't immediately available to comment. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the detachment at 250-787-8100, or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
