Intruder startles resident in late night B&E attempt

Man attempts to enter Mackenzie Avenue residence on Tuesday night, chase ensues.

Revelstoke RCMP are looking for a man who attempted to enter the back door of a local residence late Tuesday evening.

RCMP said a resident in the 700 block of Mackenzie Avenue was startled when the man tried to get in at about 9 p.m. on Sept. 17.

The man fled on foot with the homeowner in pursuit on a bicycle. The cyclist located the intruder in a neighbouring yard, apparently trying to hide by holding still on a large landscaping rock.

The suspect took off again, and police were called.

Police searched the downtown area, stopping people who matched the description, but no arrest was made.

They are asking residents to be on the lookout for a man in his 20s. He’s about 1.83 metres tall (six feet), 98 kilos (215 pounds), with an athletic build and short, dark hair. He was wearing a dark hoody and dark coloured pants.

“Revelstoke RCMP are advising the public to ensure they lock their doors and windows, especially at night and when leaving your residence unattended,” said Revelstoke RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Thomas Blakney. “For additional security purposes, [we] encourage you to have appropriate lighting for both inside and outside your residence.”

If you have info on this incident, contact the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255.
