Burglar Pokes Sleeping Woman Before Fleeing

A Guelph man was arrested after a homeowner was awakened Tuesday morning by a stranger poking her.

Just before 1 a.m., a resident in the area of Edinburgh Road South and Water Street called 911 to report she was asleep when a man woke her by poking her in the back. He told her he had broken in to get something to eat and then left the residence. Glasses and a watch were also taken. The victim in her 60s was not physically injured.

Officers arrived quickly and located the suspect on the front steps of another nearby home. He was placed under arrest and the victim’s property was recovered.


A 21-year-old Guelph man is charged with break and enter and trespassing at night. He was held for a bail hearing Tuesday.

The Guelph Police Service encourages all residents to ensure their doors and windows are closed and secured overnight.
