The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) is calling for action after an alleged incident involving a gun last week.
RCMP are investigating and have released a sketch of a suspect after an Indigenous woman driving on Highway 55 near Pierceland on Aug. 2 had a gun pulled on her and was threatened. The woman was able to get away and no injuries were reported.
In a media release sent out Monday the FSIN urged people who live in the area to assist investigators in identifying the suspect. FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron said police need to take action as quickly as possible for the good of everybody.
“This incident has undertones of the Colton Boushie incident and the RCMP must conclude it before it divides the communities; we need justice in this matter,” he said.
The suspect is described as being an older man with a heavy build and balding white hair. He was last seen wearing a black cowboy hat, a blue plaid shirt, brown suspenders, black boots and wire framed glasses. The suspect was driving a green tractor and hauling hay bales.
Anyone with information is being asked to call Pierceland RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
