A Surrey woman has been charged in connection with a violent home invasion that put a man in the hospital in an induced coma for a month last year and left him with ongoing health issues.

Dallas Cheryse McKay, 27, is also accused of robbing the same man — who cannot be identified due to a publication ban on the court file — a month before the attack.

McKay was charged in December with break and enter, aggravated assault, three counts of unlawful confinement or imprisonment, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and two counts of robbery in connection with an incident that took place in Whalley on Feb. 13, 2015.

At about 5 a.m. that day, Surrey RCMP were called to a home in the 11000-block 136th Street, where they found a 49-year-old man who had been stabbed and severely beaten. The man was rushed to hospital in serious condition, where he remained in an induced coma for a month.

He continues to have problems with his speech.

Police said the attack was targeted. The victim knew the suspect.

McKay is also charged with three counts of robbery and one count of using an imitation firearm in connection with an incident that took place at the same residence on Jan. 10, 2015. It’s believed the alleged robbery was related to a drug debt.

McKay’s next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 11.
