A man accused of repeatedly breaking and entering into the residence of a former domestic partner was arrested the second time he tried it.
Early Friday morning, police responded to a call of break and enter and associated domestic violence in the 600 block of 13th Street West at 6:45 a.m. A female resident had suffered a laceration to her face after a man gained entry to her house and threw an object at her, causing injury.
The male subject fled the scene before police and paramedics arrived and transported the victim to the Victoria Hospital for treatment of her injuries. Law enforcement officers proved unable to locate the suspect.
On Sunday at 7:30 a.m., police responded to the same address after receiving a 911 call from the female complainant stating that the man had broken into her residence again. Police arrived and arrested the 30-year-old male suspect at the scene.
The suspect was remanded in custody and made his first appearance in Prince Albert Provincial Court on Monday. He was released from custody with conditions and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
Warren Elliot Durston of Prince Albert is charged with two counts of break and enter, as well as assault causing bodily harm.
