Police are asking for the public’s help following a home invasion yesterday afternoon.
At approximately 5:30 p.m., Prince George RCMP officers responded to a report of a home invasion assault at an address in the Pineview area of Prince George. Initial indications are that a man entered the residence, assaulted the lone adult male occupant, and then fled the scene.
Officers attended the area including a police dog service team. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was knocked out during the incident. As a result, investigators believe that a time delay occurred before police were called. The suspect was not located.
