Prince George man charged with forcible confinement
A Prince George man faces charges of forcible confinement, among others, following an incident Aug. 22.
Two men were riding quads in the Gauthier Road area, west of Prince George around 9 p.m., when they were stopped by a man with a rifle. The man pointed the gun at them, told them they were trespassing, and removed the keys from the vehicles.
They were held for a period of time before the keys were returned, at which time they left the area.
The man was identified as Sandor Francias Gabris, 42, of Prince George. He was arrested without incident and appeared in court on Aug. 24, facing two counts each of pointing a firearm and forcible confinement as well as a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was released until his next court appearance, scheduled for Sept. 12.
Since the arrest, a similar complaint in the same general area has been reported.
