RCMP seeking assistance in B & E case
In the early morning hours of Aug. 21, members of the Happy Valley- Goose Bay RCMP responded to three separate break & enters into residential homes.
The first incident occurred at approximately 2:20 am when an unknown man entered a home through an unlocked door in the Grand Street area. The man was discovered in the home by a homeowner and then fled on foot.
The second incident occurred in the Court Manche Street area sometime after 2:30 am. During this incident an unknown man entered a home through an unlocked door and was scared off by the homeowner. The suspect in this incident was described as being approximately 5ft 10in tall with long shaggy type hair and of aboriginal descent.
A third incident occurred in the Mesher Street area when a man broke into a residence at approximately 4:00 am and assaulted the female tenant. The man and woman knew each other and the man was subsequently arrested a short time later. The man was held in custody and appeared in Provincial Court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay later that day to answer to several criminal charges including break & enter and assault.
The RCMP are requesting to public's assistance in identifying the suspect in both the break & enters in the Court Manche and Grand Street areas. The RCMP would also like to remind the general public to lock their doors — especially at night — and to leave a light on over each entrance as a general deterrence and to report any suspicious activity to the police.
If you, or anyone you know, has any information on these break & enters, or any other crime, you are asked to contact the Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP at 709-896-3383.
