On December 15, 2019 shortly after 10:00 am, police responded to a report of an individual who was sitting in the snow wearing pajamas in the 800 block of 10th street. Witnesses report the individual appeared to have blood on them.
Police located the individual who indicated that an unknown male entered their residence while making demands for drugs. The suspect then stabbed the victim before the victim was able to flee the home. The victim was transported by ambulance to BRHC to be seen for injuries, where they were treated and released.
Police searched the residence for the suspect male; however, he had left. He was located a short distance away from the home, and arrested. He was found to be in possession of several weapons, including a homemade mace consisting of a metal object tied to the end of a scarf, a kitchen knife, and a multi-tool device, which included a blade.
The 47-year-old suspect, who was intoxicated upon his arrest, was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center and will appear today on court on charges of Possession of Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose X 3, Break and Enter and Commit Offence, Assault with a Weapon, Fail to Comply with Condition of Undertaking.
