Police raid catches fourth, final suspect in home invasion
A police raid yesterday has resulted in what the RCMP allege is the fourth and final suspect in what was reported as a home invasion on July 29 in Borden-Carleton.
In that July event, police say the four people were involved in a break, enter and assault with a weapon.
The latest man to be arrested is now in jail, and all four made initial court appearances Wednesday in Summerside.
The arrest was made through the co-operation of the RCMP major crime unit and the East Prince Joint Forces Operations team.
The alleged crimes in question began Saturday at 1:30 p.m., a man and woman were reported to have entered a residence in Stratford and robbed a man of cash. The victim was hit with some sort of metal object, suffering minor injuries.
Police say the female suspect is known to the victim. The male suspect covered his face with a hoodie or bandana.
Later the same day, at around 11 p.m., two men and a woman are alleged to have entered a residence in Borden-Carleton and assaulted several people. At least two of the victims say they were struck with a baseball bat.
Again, police say some of the victims and assailants knew each other.
RCMP and Summerside Police Services located and arrested three suspects in Summerside in relation to the Borden-Carleton incident.
The investigation team is asking for tips from anyone that knows about these instances.
