RCMP have charged Roy Marshall

Charges laid in standoff with Alberni RCMP

Roy Marshall, 38, faces mischief, obstruction, uttering threats and breaching court conditions charges after a six-hour police standoff.

Charges have been laid against the man Port Alberni RCMP say had a standoff with them for almost seven hours.

After barricading himself inside his trailer last Friday night, 38-year-old Roy Marshall now faces one charge each of mischief, obstruction of a peace officer, uttering threats and breach of court conditions, an official with the provincial prosecutors office in Port Alberni said.

The RCMP investigation is ongoing and further charges may yet be forthcoming, the official added.

Marshall remains in police custody and is scheduled to appear in Port Alberni Provincial Court on Thursday.

RCMP Emergency Response Team members raided Marshall’s trailer on Omoah Place at 1:40 a.m. Saturday after several hours of trying to talk him out.

Marshall was arrested and taken into custody. A 15-year-old girl who was in the trailer at the time of the incident was unharmed, the USMA family services agency is now involved in the matter.

A large breed dog that charged at officers and was shot is receiving veterinary care.

Police initially responded to calls of an intoxicated man causing a disturbance at the trailer at approximately 7 p.m.
