There’s increased pressure for a neighbourhood watch program in a Moncton community following an alleged break-in.
Cathy Manuel, a resident of the city’s old west end, said she’s angry “someone violated my security,” after she allegedly someone broke into her home while she was sleeping.
“It wasn’t just a little noise and then quiet, there was a fair bit of noise,” said Manuel.

Just after 5 a.m. Friday morning, Manuel made her way downstairs to see what was going on.
“Everything was open, drawers were open, pantry was open, door to the basement was open,” she said. “Also, the door to the backyard and to the garage was open.”

She said she left the garage door open by mistake as she’s been in the midst of a landscaping project.
She found a man walking outside her home immediately afterwards, who denied that he was in her home.
“Not a lot was stolen from me,” she says. “It still feels like a violation of my person, of my property and very much an intrusion on my privacy.”
But it was a neighbour who was able to spot the suspect and provide a description to RCMP.
