An attempted murder charge has been laid against a man accused in a home invasion and assault in Red Deer early Sunday morning.

Mounties say they received a 911 call after a 53-year-old woman woke up to find a man in her Eastview home who had broken in through the back door.

It’s alleged the suspect assaulted the woman repeatedly as she tried to get him out of the house.

Once police arrived and surrounded the home, the suspect left the residence but refused to obey RCMP commands, resulting in a high-risk arrest.

Afterwards, the victim was treated at the scene then taken to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, with Red Deer RCMP Victim Services now engaged in the situation.

Dustin Charles Lindsay, 30, has been charged with attempted murder without firearm, breaking, entering and committing offence and possession of weapon for dangerous purpose. He is due in Red Deer court December 4.

Police say the victim and suspect are not known to each other.
