In August 2018, a seriously bizarre event took place in a quiet town in BC when a woman tried to force her way into a home using a knife. Not only that, but she also tried to kidnap another woman's baby. Sharon Forner has pleaded guilty after trying to kidnap a baby with a butchers knife in Osoyoos. She has pleaded guilty to a number of charges. With a court date set for next month, she could be facing some jail time.
On August 9, 2018, police in the South Okanagan in British Columbia investigated a strange report. According to police, on August 8, 2018, Osoyoos RCMP received a report that a woman walked into a residence on 78th Avenue in the morning at around 9 AM. The woman was confronted by the homeowner, and she then asked to see the baby in the house.
According to police, the homeowner pushed the woman out of the door. This is when the women allegedly grabbed a concealed butcher knife that was hidden in her waistband and forced her way back into the house. The determined homeowner and mother pushed the woman out of the door once again and reported the incident to RCMP.
On August 9, 2018, the woman was located and arrested. The 45-year-old female suspect of this case was identified as Sharon Constance Forner.
The following day, she was charged with one count of assault with a weapon, one count of break and enter to commit an indictable offence, and one count of possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace or the purpose of committing an offence.
The entire incident was caught on home security footage and has since been posted online. While the victim’s name has not been released, she has come forward to allow people to view the video. In the video, you can see Forner wearing a disguise with a wig and gardening gloves.
Last week on April 12, 2019, Forner went to court in Penticton where she pleaded guilty to one charge of break and enter with intent to commit a crime. According to the Osoyoos Times, all Forner said was “yes" when entering her guilty plea during the Friday court.
Forner is set to appear back in the Supreme Court next month on May 8, 2019. A psychiatric evaluation of Forner will take place during her court appearance, the Osoyoos Times reports.
