A Sylvan Lake woman was arrested following a home invasion in Red Deer April 7.

Red Deer RCMP responded to the crime in progress in the city’s Kentwood neighbourhood around 5:40 a.m. Homeowners were awoken by the sound of someone in their house, and found the female suspect trying to flee with a purse and electronics along with several other items.

The male homeowner confronted the female suspect, and was struck by the suspect’s brass knuckles in the ensuing struggle. Despite suffering cuts on his head, the homeowner was eventually able to restrain the suspect until police arrived on scene.

Another resident of the home was also hit by the suspect as the suspect was being restrained. Medical treatment wasn’t required by either of the victims.

Police say the victims and the suspect weren’t known to one another.

Red Deer RCMP responded to the scene immediately and arrested the suspect without further incident. A licence plate found in the suspect’s bag was said to have been stolen from a vehicle in the same area earlier that morning.

Kristen Lee Hiebert, 29, was charged with breaking and entering, robbery with a weapon, two counts of assault with a weapon, unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and breach of probation.

She was scheduled to make a court appearance in Red Deer on Tuesday.
