Man injured following home invasion


Two men were arrested and one is facing charges following a home invasion in Prince George Saturday.

Prince George RCMP say that during the early morning hours they were called out to the 1300 block of Strathcona Avenue. Inside the house police found a man who had sustained significant, but not life threatening, injuries. The suspects fled to a residence in the 2200 block of Oak Street and due to the nature of the event, the Emergency Response Team was activated.

A short time later, two men were arrested without incident.

Julien Naseem Lazarre, 20, is facing a variety of charges including attempted murder, armed robbery, break and enter and two counts of failing to comply with a recognizance.

Police believe the home invasion to be targeted and the general population is not at risk.

The investigation is ongoing at this time and information from the public is always appreciated.
