On Wednesday, August 23, 2023, shortly after 9 pm, Northern Rockies RCMP were called to a report of a home invasion on Boundry Road in Fort Nelson.

An unknown man came into a home, through the front door, and took keys from a key rack. The homeowner chased the suspect out of the house and down the street where he was assaulted by the suspect. Community members came to the aid of the home owner and held the suspect until police arrived.

The suspect was combative with the police but was arrested after a brief struggle. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment of serious but non-life-injuries.

The suspect, Randell Cole Auger, 36 years old, has been charged break and enter, theft, assault causing bodily harm, assault police officer and obstruction. Auger has been remanded in custody to a provincial correctional facility awaiting a future court appearance.

This was a random event and Auger is not known to the home owners said S/Sgt Jason Rumming NCO i/c Northern Rockies RCMP. Auger is from Alberta, where he is well known to police and had just arrived in Fort Nelson
