Man Facing Charges In 2004 Crime

A 29 year old man from the Island is facing 6 charges relating to a home invasion more than 9 years ago in Petitcodiac.

Michael Arthur Gaudet of Charlottetown was in Moncton court charged with forcible confinement, assault, robbery, and break and enter into a home.

Two men wearing masks entered a home in Petitcodiac in May of 2004 demanding money. A woman living at the house was assaulted and tied up. Her son arrived home and was assaulted before the pair took off.

A positive DNA match with the National DNA Data Bank allowed the Mounties to confirm the identity of one of the two men involved in the home invasion.

Gaudet is being held in custody until his next court appearance at December 5. RCMP are still looking for another man involved in the crime.
