A young man from Lincoln is facing a list of charges after police allege he stole a vehicle and crashed into a home before leading officers on a foot chase.

The incident happened in Grimsby yesterday morning around 7:15 a.m. when officers were called to the Alexandra Ave and Dennis Ave area with reports of vehicle theft, break and enter, and assault.

Police were able to find the vehicle close by after the driver lost control and crashed into a home.

Two people allege they were the victims of assault - one was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment. One of the victims received minor injuries, the other is coping with serious injuries.

Damage to the house is estimated to be around $50,000 while damage to the vehicle is expected to be in the neighbourhood of $3,000.
