Violent home invasion

RCMP continue to investigate after a Timberlea woman was attacked in a home invasion early yesterday morning.

She woke to the sounds of someone in her bedroom on St. Margaret’s Bay Road around 3:00am. The man attacked, hitting her with a metal object and choking her. She was able to fight him off and run to a neighbour’s house for help.  She was taken to hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

A K-9 unit was brought in but couldn’t track the suspect.
