Quesnel RCMP are asking the public to be vigilant in locking their doors and securing their homes after an unknown male broke into a residence and assaulted a female occupant early Sunday morning (Dec. 7), in the 4000 block of Quesnel Hixon Road.

Investigators are seeking any information on this suspect, and are also looking for witnesses who may have observed a male in and around the 4000 block of Quesnel Hixon Road who may have been on foot and/or may have been picked up by a vehicle between the hours of 6 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. Dec. 7.
