After warning the public to stay away from the Kopper King area because of a “potentially serious incident” that sent a man to hospital, RCMP now say they don’t believe anything criminal actually happened.

According to police, a resident called 911 Wednesday around noon after going home to find a man on his front yard “who needed urgent medical care.”

EMS was called and the RCMP came too.

While investigating, police put out a public warning to keep away.

Officers directed traffic in the area and canvassed the neighbourhood.

Police released very little about what happened at the time. Now that everything appears to be wrapped up, information is still hard to come by.

Other than saying that reports of a beating are false, police won’t say anything about the man’s injuries or what led them to investigate in the first place.

“For privacy reasons, police cannot divulge further information on the injured man or the circumstances surrounding the incident, other than he is still in hospital,” reads an RCMP news release.

“This appears to be an isolated incident and police are not looking for any suspects nor are police investigating it as a criminal matter.”
