Yellowknife RCMP have charged a man in connection with a break and enter early Friday morning.

RCMP say a suspect entered a house through a garage window at around 3:30 a.m. while the family slept. The intruder fled when the family's dog began barking.

A 32-year-old man is facing charges of break and enter and two counts of breach of probation. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
