TERRACE RCMP have arrested a person they describe as being known to them following an Aug. 27 home invasion on Sparks St.

Police allege a 31-year-old woman broke into a residence of a 24-year-old woman on the 2800 block of Sparks the afternoon and then seriously assaulted the woman when she returned home.

“Fortunately neighbours found the victim in front of her home and called 9-1-1 right away,” said Sergeant Mike Robinson, the acting officer in charge of the RCMP detachment here.

The victim was not able to provide any information to help identify her attacker but Robinson said officers were able to quickly pinpoint a suspect.

“It was some great work done by our General Duty, General Investigative Services and forensics officers last night,” said Robinson.

“We got the call just before 5 p.m. and our police officers were able to arrest a suspect within three hoursby putting together a few pieces of information.”

Police say the arrested suspect was not known to the victim who is in hospital recovering from her injuries.

The suspect remains in custody and information seeking charge approval is being sent to crown prosecutors.
