      Video has been released of an RCMP interrogation of a North Okanagan man facing several serious sex charges. 

      At one point, it shows Curtis Wayne Sagmoen erupting in anger in an interview room after being informed that police plan to search his parents' property and his computer.

      Sagmoen lifts a a chair before being calmed down by Const. Richard McQueen.

      In the interview, Sagmoen denies threatening sex workers or firing a gun.

      He's on trial for assault and weapons charges. In one count, he's accused of pointing a firearm at a female sex worker in the summer of 2017.

      Other charges include disguising his face with intent to commit an offence, uttering threats, and discharging a firearm.

      CBC News video shows Curtis Sagmoen lifting a chair in a fit of anger during his interrogation.

      Last year, he was also charged with assault causing bodily harm in connection with an incident in Maple Ridge in 2013.

      The remains of Traci Generoux, an 18-year-old Vernon woman, were found on his parents' farm in the Silver Creek area in October 2017.

      Four other women went missing in the North Okanagan in less than two years.

      Sagmoen was living in a trailer on his parents' farm when he was arrested.

      He has not been charged in connection with the death of Generoux or the disappearance of the four other women.
