RCMP described Brydges as known to be extremely violent. In a news release police said the woman injured at the RV park was in critical condition while the male was expected to be released from hospital on Tuesday.

Brydges said in court that he had not spoken to a lawyer yet so Crown counsel adjourned the bail hearing. Brydges was remanded to the Okanagan Correction Centre and will be sent to a Lower Mainland jail to appear in Surrey court via video on June 6 at 9:30 a.m.
