Vermilion suspect facing armed robbery, assault charges

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.
