Dispute turns into home invasion
On March 29 at 8:52 p.m. the police inadvertently learned of a potential home invasion in the 2000 Block of Tamarack Street in Prince George.
A verbal neighbour dispute between the upstairs tenants and the downstairs tenants at the location, turned into a home invasion and an assault.
Police attended the residence and upon arrival interrupted the home invasion and assault from continuing. Numerous suspects attempted to flee the scene on foot or by vehicles but were stopped or located a short time later by members of the Prince George RCMP Crime Reduction Team or General Duty Section.
A 44-year-old male from Prince George was found at the scene with head injuries. He was transported by the BC Ambulance Service to the University Hospital of Northern BC with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.
Two men were stopped and arrested by the Crime Reduction Team while trying to flee the scene in a vehicle. Drugs and weapons were located and seized by police following a search of the vehicle. Two youth males were also arrested in relation to this incident.
A member of the Prince George RCMP Police Dog Section was dispatched to the scene to search for any other possible suspects.
The Prince George RCMP is still looking for one more male suspect. He is known to police and is not believe to be a threat to the public, as this was a dispute between people known to each other.
Police anticipate charges will be laid against persons upon completion of the investigation.
