Two men are facing charges after a violent home invasion in Grand Falls-Windsor early yesterday morning.
RCMP say a homeowner reported two men—both wearing masks—broke into his home demanding money and other property.
In the altercation that followed, the homeowner was able to remove the men’s masks and identify them. One of two suspects was injured as result of the altercation.
Both men ran from the scene, but were later located by police.
A 35-year-old man was hospitalized for treatment of his injuries, while a 32-year-old man is in police custody.
Both men are facing charges of disguise with intent, assault with a weapon, damage to property and break and enter.
Police do not believe the crime was a random act, and the homeowner and suspects were known to each other. The investigation continues.
