Pembroke Man Arrested Following 5 Month Investigation Into Home Invasion

The suspect wanted in relation to a serious home invasion on Round Lake Road last winter has been arrested and is currently in police custody following a more than 5 month investigation.

59 year old Kevin John of Pembroke has been arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault, Arson and Robbery with Violence. He is currently in custody awaiting a second court appearance tomorrow morning.

Upper Ottawa Valley OPP Constable, Shawn Peever, says the charges stem from an incident that happened on March 27th…

“In this case the victim, who was the property owner, returned home at approximately 9:30 in the evening on March 27th and was assaulted by a male suspect who had broken into the victims residence. The victim sustained serious injuries and the suspect fled the scene in the victims vehicle, which he stole. The vehicle was found a short time later on Round lLke Road and it had been burned.”

Investigators believe the incident was NOT random in nature and no other suspects are being sought at this time.
