Two separate investigations by Vermilion officers in which they report a weapon was involved have led to charges being laid against a Vermilion suspect.
On May 20 at about 12:30 a.m., Vermilion RCMP were called to a robbery against someone in which they report a weapon was involved. Police identified a male-suspect and sought to find the individual.
On May 22, at about 8:24 a.m., Vermilion RCMP received a call about a man who had been assaulted with bear spray in Vermilion. Investigators later determined that there were two victims, and the incident was a home invasion. A short time later, police arrested a male-suspect.
Andrew James Prill, 37-years of Vermilion faces charges of:
- Robbery with a weapon
- Aggravated assault
- Assault with a weapon (2 counts)
- Break and enter to a residence
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Mischief under $5000
Prill was held for a Judicial Interim Release hearing and was released on a release order.
The suspect is due back in Alberta Court of Justice in Vermilion on June 5.
