A Quesnel woman is being treated at G.R. Baker Hospital after sustaining injuries during an early morning break and enter.

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.

At this stage of the investigation, RCMP believe this was a random act and the victim was not targeted.

The suspect is described as a white male with a full beard and a deep voice, wearing a hoody and a dark coloured jacket. It is believed that this male may have been picked up by a vehicle after this incident.

The female victim is being treated for non life threatening injuries and is expected to be released from hospital later today.

Quesnel RCMP GIS Investigators have been called out to assist in this serious crime investigation.

“We are committed to exhausting all leads and utilizing all available resources to ensure that the person responsible for this crime is apprehended and brought to justice,” Detachment Commander for the Quesnel RCMP, Staff Sgt. Steve Vrolyk said.

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.
