Suspects arrested after breaking into Prince George property and demanding dog at gunpoint

Two men have been arrested in Prince George after breaking into a property brandishing weapons and demanding the residents' hand over their dog.

According to a Prince George RCMP media release, the two armed men broke into the property in the early evening May 29, and demanded the occupants hand over their dog. The two male occupants refused to hand the dog over.

Police arrived on the scene during the altercation and the pair of suspects attempted to flee the property via the back door, but were unsuccessful and promptly arrested.

The incident took place at 6:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Tamarack Street, Prince George.

"No one, including the dog, was physically injured," reads the media release.

Police discovered a rifle and a BB gun that resembled an assault-style rifle, along with body armour during their investigation, all believed to have been left behind by the suspects. Police believe the attack was targeted and one of the residents knew the suspects involved.

A toddler was sleeping at the residence at the time of the incident.

Shayn Robert Bulmer, 23, and Dylon Sadillo McLemore, 23, both from of Prince George, remain in custody and have been charged with break and enter to commit an indictable offence, possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, and two counts of assault with a weapon.

The men are scheduled to appear in court June 2.
