Police discourage repeated, random marriage proposals

There is such thing as too much affection, a local man learned on Friday, according to Trail top cop RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.

"On Nov. 20, at 12:40 p.m. the Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report of a suspicious set of circumstances, after the complainant’s casual acquaintance, a 28-year-old Trail man, had asked her to marry him, then propositioned her for intimate relations.

"The Trail woman, in her 30s, felt uncomfortable about the situation and chose to contact Trail RCMP to report the matter and her concerns.

"A front line RCMP officer conducted an investigation and learned the man had allegedly asked several other men and women to marry him the same day. Police located the man and cautioned him to refrain from continuing to ask people to marry him.

"Anyone else with any information, or who may have also had contact with the man is asked to contact the Trail and Greater District RCMP."
