Red Deer RCMP are searching for 19-year-old Jacob Conrad Courtemanche, who is wanted on a warrant regarding a targeted home invasion in the Morrisroe neighbourhood on April 25th that sent a 25-year-old man to hospital with serious injury to his hand.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on April 25th, RCMP responded to a report of a man who was injured during a home invasion at a residence on Metcalf Avenue.

Three men entered the home carrying a sword and a knife and demanded property from the occupants of the home. A 25-year-old man was struck with the sword and sustained serious injury to his hand. EMS staff attended and took the victim to hospital for treatment.

At this point in the investigation, RCMP believe the intruders had targeted the residence. RCMP continue their work to determine the identities of the other two suspects.

Courtemanche is described as Caucasian, 5’7” tall and 130 lbs. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Citizens are advised not to approach Courtemanche if he is seen; instead, contact Red Deer RCMP immediately at 403-343-5575.
