The New Brunswick RCMP says they are seeking the public's help to locate a man accused of assaulting a woman with a weapon during a home invasion in East Brighton.

Officers responded to a report of a break-and-enter and assault at a residence in the early morning hours of Sunday, according to a RCMP news release.

Police say a man had broken into a residence, assaulted a woman, and threatened her. The woman was able to call 911, at which point the man fled the scene.

RCMP say the man, 35-year-old Bon Trecartin, is well known to police and is considered violent.

He is described as having a medium build with very short brown hair, as well as a trimmed beard and moustache. He has a tattoo on the right side of his neck, as well as tattoos on his right arm and hand.

If you see Trecartin, please do not approach, and call 911 immediately, said police.

Anyone who may have information on the whereabouts of Trecartin is asked to contact the Western Valley Region RCMP at 506-325-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
