Man sentenced for break-in of senior man’s home

Aggravated assault charges stayed in Abbotsford incident

A man who was charged in 2016 in relation to the assault and robbery of an 86-year-old Abbotsford resident has been sentenced to a nine-month jail term to be followed by three years of probation.

Hughie Dean Stump, 46, previously pleaded guilty to break-and-enter – just one of the six charges he faced.

The other five charges were stayed during sentencing June 20 in Abbotsford provincial court. Those charges were aggravated assault, robbery, possession of stolen property, theft of a credit card, and use of a stolen credit card.

Two charges of robbery and assault causing bodily harm – from a separate incident on June 16, 2016 in Abbotsford – were also stayed against Stump.

Stump was charged the day after an incident on July 12, 2016 in which a senior man was followed to his apartment complex in the 2800 block of Clearbrook Road.

Police at the time said the suspect entered the man’s suite, assaulted him and rummaged through his home, leaving with a wallet and jewelry.

The 86-year-old was left bleeding on the ground for 40 minutes, until his wife arrived home and discovered him there.

The man was taken to hospital to be treated for bruises and lacerations to his face and an injury to his shoulder.

Abbotsford police reviewed surveillance footage from the building and tracked the victim’s credit card. When the card was used at a local business, police moved to the area and recognized the man from the footage.
