VANCOUVER - A Burnaby, BC, man has been charged for allegedly breaking into a woman's home and sexually assaulting her last November, RCMP said.

Kitriel Javier Aquino, 21, was arrested Thursday and charged with sex assault with a weapon, break and enter with intent, and wearing a disguise with intent.

"Although the victim did not appear to know the accused, the investigation would indicate that this was a targeted incident," said Cpl. Steve Hoivik in a statement Monday.
The attack happened early Nov. 15 at a home in northwest Burnaby.

Despite being threatened with a weapon and attacked, police said the woman wasn't physically injured.
Mounties are reminding the public to secure their homes, including locking doors and windows and using motion sensors or alarms if available.
