A court date has been set for next month in relation to a suspected November assault of a Wal-Mart employee.
An incident, captured by shoppers and posted on social medias in November at the Dawson Creek Wal-Mart, shows a man in an altercation with another - about mask wearing protocols in the store's front foyer.
A customer and female friend were entering the store - when the mask discussion went to the next level into potential Criminal Code violations.
Charges have been laid against the involved male and female relating to the assault - after both suspects had been requested to wear their mask upon entry into the store.
"They're both listed for appearances," notes Local Journalism Initiative reporter Tom Summer with Glacier Media. He notes the pair are scheduled to appear on February 23, 2021.
Kennedy Pace faces an assault charge while Jordan Taylor faces both an assault charge and mischief under $5,000, (relating to the intentional damage of the victim's cellphone during the altercation).
