Two men arrested for alleged Rutland home invasion Saturday night

2 arrested for home invasion

Almost a week after an alleged home invasion in Rutland that had neighbours asking questions, police have released some information about the incident.

Saturday night, police were called to a report of a home invasion on the 600 block of Webster Road.

As a result of the RCMP investigation, 50-year-old Clayton Zeleniski and a 42-year-old man, who police have not named, were arrested.

“We do not believe there is any risk to the public as a result of this incident,” said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP. “Due to the nature of this matter, we will not be releasing further information at this time.”

As a part of the police investigation into the Webster Road home invasion, RCMP officers were at 605 Gerstmar Road on Sunday and Monday. Zeleniski is believed to have lived at the Gerstmar Road house in the past, but it's unclear if he was currently living there.

Zeleniski is now facing charges of breaking and entering, assault with a weapon and breaching a release order. He was out on bail at the time of the alleged home invasion, after he was charged with a number of weapons offences following an RCMP search at the Gerstmar Road house earlier this year.

He remains in custody with a court date set for next Monday.

It's unclear if any charges have been laid against the 42-year-old man, who was released on strict conditions. Police say the full investigation will be forwarded to the Crown.
