BONNYVILLE - A 34-year-old man found with blood on his hands was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily harm.
On March 31, local police responded to a complaint regarding a break in at a 53 St. residence in town. When RCMP arrived on scene they located two victims bleeding and a damaged front door.
The suspect, identified as Bonnyville resident Kyle Nadeau, was found "heavily intoxicated with blood covering his hands," detailed Bonnyville RCMP Sgt. Kim Hillier in an email.
According to Hillier, an argument led to an altercation and Nadeau was asked to leave the residence. Once outside, he tried to force his way back in, causing "damage to a door and injuries from the force of the door being opened."
Hillier confirmed none of the victims, who are known to Nadeau, suffered any serious injuries.
Nadeau has been charged with breaking and entering, two counts of mischief under $5,000, assault causing bodily harm, and three counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
