VANCOUVER — A Canadian man is facing new charges of trying to hire someone to break into his ex-wife’s house.
The British Columbia Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is urging any remaining members of the public who have information that may assist them with the arrest and charge of the 21-year-old Vancouver man in the Aug. 7 break-in case to come forward.
The man is accused of stalking his ex-wife and posting a secret message on her property and the victim’s cellphone declaring herself “bored with it” and making another request for money.Related Content Cat licked nearby woman: RCMP
The Mounties found the man’s cellphone records showed that on the day the girl was allegedly attacked, the suspect stayed with her in her bed for an hour, stopping in the middle of the night to make the 900-kilometre round trip over U.S. Highway 97 to recover the phone.
The suspect has not been identified but is linked to other break-ins, including one in Burnaby and one in West Vancouver.
Additional charges of mischief over $5,000, assault and mischief more than $5,000 are expected.
The RCMP have appealed to the public to come forward and help solve these crimes.
IHIT would also like to remind all those who may be of interest to the investigation of the assailant in this case and any other similar break-ins that it can be reported to police immediately.
