Two suspects are in custody after the brutal beating of a Terrace woman.

The woman attended an address on the evening of October 5, 2021, where she was badly beaten with a weapon, forcibly confined, threatened, and robbed of cash on October 5, 2021.

The two suspects, Matthew Janzen and Brooke Turner, were arrested on October 7, 2021 and a combined total of 24 charges were laid including assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, unlawful confinement, uttering threats, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, robbery, and other firearms offences, to name a few. Janzen and Turner have been remanded in custody.
