Woman brandishes machete in CostCo parking lot confrontation

A dispute over a parking spot at CostCo escalated into a nearly deadly confrontation on Sunday, April 28.

West Shore RCMP says a woman reported that while trying to park, she was cut off by another woman who then stole her spot.

The complainant and suspect were arguing over the parking stall, when the suspect reached into her vehicle and pulled out a machete.

The complaint backed away and called the police.  

West Shore RCMP have identified the suspect, but have not located her yet, and are asking the woman to come forward and turn herself in.  They would like the woman to have an opportunity to explain her side of the story.

The RCMP is discouraging road rage, and says if confrontations arise and escalate, to pull over safely and call 911.

West Shore RCMP is asking anyone who witnessed the incident to call them at 250-474-2264, or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
