Suspect arrested in decade-old robbery and assault


The Windsor Police Service has charged a suspect in a decade-old robbery and assault.

Members of the Windsor Police Major Crimes Unit arrested Kyle Strilchuck in connection to a home invasion that occurred on August 19, 2013. Two suspects forced their way into a residence in the 1000 block of California Ave., where they forcibly confined, assaulted, and threatened a male occupant with a gun and a knife. The suspects then stole cash, a cellular phone, and marijuana before fleeing the scene.

One suspect was arrested and charged within days of the incident, but the identity of the second suspect remained a mystery until now. Thanks to advancements in forensic technology, investigators were able to leverage DNA evidence retrieved at the scene to identify a second suspect and bring closure to the victim. 

Strilchuck, 40, was arrested yesterday in the 1400 block of Victoria Ave. He has been charged with the following:
Break and enter
Assault with a weapon
Assault causing bodily harm
Forcible confinement
Uttering death threats
Pointing a firearm
Possession of a firearm
