Man tasered in home invasion

Police are looking for three armed, masked suspects

The incident occurred in Lynwood Mobile Home Park at approximately 9:53 pm. Three people wearing masks forced their way into a residence at that location, committed the assault and left with personal property belonging to the victim.

RCMP sergeant Barry Kennedy said “there is some kind of connection there…it wasn’t a random home invasion.”

Kennedy said the crime may be the result of a dispute over money, and added that at least one suspect has been possibly identified but not located.

The case is being handled by the RCMP’s Regional General Investigation’s Unit in Penticton.

The victim was transported to Princeton General Hospital, treated for injuries, and released.

Kennedy called a home invasion “a very rare event” for the area.

Anyone who may have seen something that may have seemed suspicious in the area or who may have information relating to this act of violence, are asked to contact the Princeton RCMP or Crimestoppers.
