Senior fights off balaclava-clad home invader in Nanaimo, BC

Senior fights off balaclava-clad home invader in Nanaimo, BC”

Nanaimo RCMP said the woman had briefly stepped outside her Winchester Avenue home Monday to shut the front gate, and returned to find a man wearing a balaclava.

The suspect pushed the woman into a bedroom but she refused to cooperate.

Officers arrived on scene minutes later, but couldn't locate the suspect.

A victim services unit has reached out to the woman, who suffered some bumps and bruises but was otherwise "no worse for wear", said Const. Gary O'Brien.

According to an RCMP press release, Reedel has some personal issues, but did not give any indication she would be leaving Nanaimo and, because of this and other factors, her disappearance is considered out of character and troubling for her friends and family.

Police say it's not the first incident to have happened at the home in the past week.

The suspect in the latest incident is described as five feet five inches tall with a slim build, wearing dark clothing and a dark balaclava. The box had been emptied of its contents.

On Saturday, the woman called police to report her jewellery box had been moved from her bedside table and found in another room.

Anybody with any information is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP, or if they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
