The RCMP have issued a warrant for a man wanted in relation to the police lockdown in the Thornhill area of Terrace on Wednesday.
Police say 31-year-old Samuel Kenneth Ratchford is wanted for assault, for incidents alleged to have happened over a period of several weeks.
He is described as being 5’6″ tall, weighing around 180lbs with brown hair and blue eyes.
In a statement, Mounties say Wednesday’s lock down and evacuation was because a gas stove had been left on in the house they believed Ratchford to be inside.
However, once they decided it was safe to move in… he was nowhere to be found.
Police ask anybody that may have seen Ratchford to call Terrace RCMP, and to not approach him.
