A Red Deer man has been charged following a Riverside Meadows home invasion where two men were assaulted with a hammer.

Police say the suspect climbed to a second-floor apartment balcony and assaulted two people inside with a hammer shortly before midnight on Friday. He climbed onto the roof of a parked vehicle to gain access to the balcony.

Two men sustained bruises and abrasions but were able to push their assailant out of the apartment.

The suspect then jumped from the balcony, landed on the same parked vehicle, and fled in another vehicle.

The suspect was known to his victims, and Red Deer RCMP located him shortly afterward on 55th Avenue. Police executed a traffic stop and took the suspect into custody without incident.

Tyrel George Jackson, 28, of Red Deer is charged with break and enter and committing a crime, two counts of assault with a weapon, possession of stolen property under $5,000, uttering threats and operating motor vehicle while disqualified, mischief under $5,000 and possession of controlled substance.

He appears in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday.
