Delta cops not releasing name of man charged with assault, citing ‘privacy issues’

Police say man charged with assault related to a “relationship violence” incident in early November

Delta Police are not releasing the name of a local man who they say has been charged with assault related to a “relationship violence” incident in early November.

“Delta Police don’t often share information about relationship violence incidents, also known as domestic or family violence, due to privacy issues,”a DPD press release states. “However, we have been updating the police board and community that Delta Police are receiving an increase in reports of offences such as assault and robbery, called person offences. The majority of those offences happen between people known to each other, some of which are deemed relationship violence incidents.”

Meanwhile, the Delta Police say that so far this month police are investigating a report of a man allegedly choking his girlfriend, and a case of threats allegedly made against a loss prevention officer.

Delta Police say that anyone needing help in dealing with relationship violence can call Delta Police at 604-946-4411 and ask for the Domestic Violence Unit or DPD Victim Services at 604-940-5019.
