FORT ST. JOHN, BC -- Fort St. John police are looking for a man with a long and violent criminal history.

32-year-old Riley Apsassin is wanted for Assault Causing Bodily Harm.

Apsassin is described as an Indigenous man, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 225 lbs. He has black hair, brown eyes, and a large scar on the left side of his face running from his left eye to his chin. He also has the word “native” tattooed on his right forearm, and the word “pride” tattooed on his left forearm.

Apsassin has a long criminal history, which includes being found guilty of breach of undertaking a number of times. However, he has been released from custody even after being with serious and violent crimes.

CJDC-TV asked the BC Prosecution Service why someone who has breached release conditions so often would be released once again. The Prosecution Services said the last time Apsassin was set free, he was released by Fort St. John police.

CJDC-TV reached out to the Fort St. John RCMP, who declined to provide comment before publication time.
