Windsor RCMP investigating home invasion
February 14, 2019, Garland’s Crossing, Hants County, Nova Scotia . . . On February 13 just after 10 p.m., a woman was in her home while her two children were sleeping upstairs. She heard a noise in the kitchen and when she went to see who it was, she found a man standing in her kitchen, wearing black clothing from head to toe, with dark sunglasses and a ski mask covering his face. The man demanded several times to know where another resident of the home was, and when the woman repeatedly told him that person wasn’t home, he pulled a knife out of his pocket and held it towards her. She pulled her phone out of her pocket and the man ran from the home, the same way he came in.
The RCMP was called and quickly arrived at the scene. They examined the footprints in the snow and determined the suspect left the area on foot, headed towards Hwy. 14, then got into a vehicle. No one was hurt during the incident. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5-foot-6 with a slim build. He had on black shoes and a black hoody and spoke with a raspy voice.
Police do not believe this was a random act. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Windsor District RCMP at 902-798-2207.
