Charges have been approved against two men after a Prince George home invasion in which the suspects demanded the occupants to hand over a dog.
Shayn Robert Bulmer and Dylon Sadillo McLemore, both local residents aged 23, were arrested after trying to flee Friday night (May 29) as RCMP responded to reports of a possible break-and-enter in the VLA area of the city.
Around 6:30 p.m., police went to a home on 1800-block Tamarack St. where the suspect raced towards the back door, but were taken into custody shortly after.
Investigators say this appeared to be a targeted attack as it’s believed Bulmer and McLemore left behind several firearms while demanding two male occupants to hand over a dog.
Police found a rifle, a BB gun that resembled an assault-style rifle and body armour.
Fortunately, nobody was injured, but Mounties also say both men and one of the victims knew each other.
A toddler was also sleeping in the home during the invasion and was also unharmed.
A Prince George RCMP release states the BC Prosecution Service has approved the following charges to both Bulmer and McLemore:
- Break-and-enter to commit indictable offence
- Possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence
- Assault with a weapon (Two counts)
Both are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (June 2) with more charges also being considered as the investigation continues.Anyone with more information is asked to call Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300, anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go online to www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca.
