File # 2017-7363
At approximately 4:00 am on Aug 16th, 2017, the Oceanside RCMP received a report of an intruder who had just fled from a home on Willow Rd in Qualicum Beach.
A 70 year old woman awoke to a stranger in her bedroom. A short struggle ensued and the male fled the residence.
The male is described as 5'8" to 5'10", stocky build and may have been wearing a flattened type hat like a tam or beret.
A Police dog was dispatched to the scene and despite an extensive search, a track was not located. Forensic investigators will be at the scene collecting evidence today and the neighbourhood will be canvassed for information.
At this time it is unclear what his intentions were.
It is believed that entry was gained through an unlocked garage door.
The RCMP would like to remind the public, particularly in the warmer weather, to be aware of leaving exterior doors and windows unlocked.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
