One person was sent to the hospital following a Tuesday night home invasion.
Shortly after 10 p.m. New Year's Day, Prince George RCMP responded to a report of an apparent home invasion in the 1700 block of Tamarack Street on the edge of the VLA neighbourhood. When officers attended the residence, they found one man suffering from apparent knife wounds.
The 27-year-old was transported to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. with wounds that are not believed to be life threatening.
Investigators believe that up to four people, one of them producing a handgun, forcibly entered the residence and confronted a male occupant. A struggle involving a knife took place and both the victim and one of the attackers were injured before they fled the scene.
Officers located three suspects at the hospital, one of then suffering from injuries that appeared to have been caused by a knife. A 28-year-old man, a 25-year-old woman and a 47-year-old woman - all from Prince George - were taken into custody without incident.
Police seized a vehicle believed to have been used in the home invasion in the hospital parking lot. Police are still looking for another male suspect and the gun from which they do not believe any shots were fired.
"It is believed that this was a targeted attack and that the public is not at risk," said RCMP spokesperson Cpl Craig Douglass. "The investigation is continuing."
The two female suspects have been released to appear in court at a later date and the police are seeking judicial authority to remand the male in custody.
It was the second home invasion police have reported in recent days after four unidentified males entered a home early Sunday morning in the 400 block of Ogilvie in the Quinson neighbourhood and demanded money and drugs. However, police say there is no reason to believe the two incidents are connected.
