Man arrested after burglary

  • Print

Three residents of a Tyndall Park home got a frightening wakeup call early Sunday.

Police say a woman who was asleep inside a Taraska Bay residence awoke to a stranger standing in her bedroom around 2 a.m. She screamed for help, alerting two other occupants. The intruder briefly assaulted the woman, then fled with some electronics he had removed from the home.

At least one of the residents began chasing the man on foot while others called police.

Investigators quickly located the suspect in the area of Inkster Boulevard and Keewatin Street.

Devon McGillivary, 22, of Winnipeg is now facing a number of charges including assault, break and enter and failing to comply with a probation order. He has been detained in custody.

The occupants of the home were emotionally shaken but not physically injured.
