Break and Enter and Assault on Woodburn

A 48-year-old male had illegally entered a residence at the trailer park

Residents of the Woodburn Mobile Home Park were at their windows late Saturday afternoon watching as multiple police vehicles and an ambulance attended one of the homes before a search of the area took place.

A 48-year-old male, according to RCMP, had illegally entered a residence at the trailer park and assaulted the resident with an undisclosed weapon.

“We received a call at about 5:20 about a suspected break and enter and assault at a residence in the 2700 block of Woodburn Road,” said Cpl. Gordon Hay of the Campbell River RCMP. “The suspect was located upon search of the area and taken into custody.

The victim was transported to hospital, treated and released.”

The nature of those injuries was not disclosed.

The suspect was released after charges were laid for break and enter and assault with a weapon, Hay said, and will appear in court at a later date.

Hay said that while the emergency response may have looked especially large to those nearby, it was just a matter of protocol, and the public should not use the level of response to assume the severity of an incident.

“We send all available personnel when we get a call of that nature,” he said.

Hay wouldn’t comment on whether that particular residence is known to be troublesome.

Hay did, however, confirm that the victim and suspect are known to each other and it was not a random attack.
