91 year old beaten in home

Police are investigating a violent break-and-enter Sunday in Princeton.

Officers were called to a home early Sunday morning for a report of an assault on a 91-year-old man.

“The man was assaulted in his home and numerous personal belongings were taken,” Cpl. Madonna Saunderson said in an email.

The victim has been treated for his injuries. The RCMP has identified a “person of interest” and is working with the BC Prosecution Service to pursue charges in the matter.

Police says the attack appears to be an isolated incident and there is no information to suggest the greater public is at risk. The incident has provoked significant outrage from residents on local Facebook groups.
