Nanaimo man uses shovel to defend himself

Nov 09 2012

A Nanaimo homeowner dug himself out of a scary situation Wednesday night.

Nanaimo RCMP said the man found himself face to face with an intruder in his garage, so he picked up the nearest thing he could find - a shovel - to defend himself.

During a brief struggle, the homeowner struck the man in the torso.

The intruder ran off, and the homeowner called police. A suspect was later arrested after a brief scuffle with officers.

Steven James Petequan, 36, has been charged with break and enter, assault and two counts of breaching probation.
