Prince George home invasion leads to stabbing
A city resident was treated then released from hospital for a stab wound obtained while struggling with two people who broke into a home on the 1800 block of Ingledew at 2:15 a.m. on May 16.
The two residents of the home, a 60-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman, were sleeping when they heard someone knocking on the door. A moment later, the back door was kicked in.
One of the residents grabbed a wooden object and the couple went to investigate the noise, surprising two suspects standing in the kitchen.
The two began to flee and were chased outside by the couple. Police say that it appears one of the suspects was struck by the resident with the wooden object. After that, one of the residents was stabbed once in the stomach with an unknown object.
Both suspects fled on foot with a bottle of liquor stolen from the home.
A police dog was brought on-scene, however the suspects were not located.
The two suspects are described as being about 165 cm (5’5”) and 45 kgs (100 lbs.), possibly in their 20’s and wearing dark clothing, possibly hoodies with dark pants.
