Crossbow shot into Penticton Avenue home

March 01, 2016 - 5:00 PM

PENTICTON - A Penticton Avenue residence was the site of what police are calling a random act of mischief last week.

Around 1:15 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, police were called to the 1400-block of Penticton Avenue for a complaint of shots fired, Penticton RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says.

A hole was found in the building’s front glass door, and directly down the hall from the front door, a crossbow arrow was found embedded in the ceiling.

One of the occupants was asleep at the time, the other was in the living room and hit by flying debris.

Neither occupant could provide police with a reason why they would be subject to such a targeted attack, Wrigglesworth says.

At this time police suspect the incident was a random act where, thankfully, no one was injured. The incident continues to be investigated.
