North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP arrested a man wanted on multiple criminal charges Tuesday shortly before 4 p.m.

Nathan Myles, 35, was taken into police custody without incident.

Myles will appear before the Courts on outstanding charges of harassment, unlawful confinement, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, two counts of assault, and four counts of uttering threats. An appearance date has not been set.

“Given the violent history of the individual involved in this case, we deployed the Island District RCMP Emergency Response Team to assist us with this arrest,” said Cpl. Darren Lagan with the Island District RCMP.

“Their expertise ensures that arrests of this nature are conducted efficiently and safely, increasing the likelihood of a peaceful resolution for all involved.”

Out of an abundance of caution, the occupants of a nearby daycare
facility were moved to a safe location away from this property, prior to
officers making contact with the suspect.

The cooperation of the children, their parents, and the daycare staff is appreciated.

The North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP also wish to thank the public and media for their attention and assistance in raising the profile of this wanted person case.
