Ottawa police say they have made an arrest and laid charges in connection with a home invasion involving a 101-year-old D-Day veteran.
Police say the vet was tied up in his home Thursday morning and robbed by a man posing as a city employee.
He later freed himself and called police.
Police say a 59-year-old Ottawa man was arrested without incident Friday after they received a tip. He has been charged with attempted murder, robbery with violence, forcible confinement, break and enter, and using a credit card obtained by crime.
The suspect, who has not been named by police, has a court appearance scheduled for today.
While the veteran was not named by police, Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino issued a statement Thursday identifying him as Ernest Cote, adding he had travelled with him for D-Day anniversary ceremonies and was honoured to know him.
