On April 15, 2019, at approximately 1:55 pm, a male suspect attended a residence in the 300 block of Wellington Street. The accused knocked on the door and after asking several questions to the female victim he then forced his way in. The suspect then pinned the female against the refrigerator and also had what appeared to be a fire arm but was determined to be a pellet gun.
Fortunately, the female’s boyfriend was just in the other room and came out to her assistance. After a brief struggle with the suspect and being able to disarm him, the accused was able to escape from the residence and ran out picking up the pellet gun as he fled.
Both the male and female victim suffered very minor injuries.
Officers from General Patrol and detectives from the Sarnia Police Service Criminal Investigation Branch began investigating the matter and were able to locate a bag with the pellet gun. They were also able to determine that the suspect had returned to Wallaceburg where he was arrested by the Chatham Kent Police on behalf of the Sarnia Police Service and returned to Sarnia.
The accused in this matter, Buddy Dinny Labor, 35 years of age, of Wallaceburg, faces one count of break and enter, two counts of assault, and one count of possessing an imitation firearm and using it to commit an offence. He remains in custody awaiting a bail hearing.
This matter was an isolated incident directed specifically at the female victim in this matter.
