Two people have been charged in connection with a home invasion near Upper Musquodoboit.

In June, a man living on Lemmon Hill Rd. in Dean was woken up in the middle of the night by another man, armed with a knife, who had broken in and was demanding his truck.

The victim agreed to drive the suspect and a woman who was waiting outside to the Dartmouth area.

At some point during the ride, the victim was able to escape the truck and tried to run off. 

Police say a fight ensued and the suspects were able to grab the keys and take off, leaving the victim on the side of the road with life-threatening injuries.

On July 2, Ontario Provincial Police arrested 30-year-old Nicholas Alcorn and 27-year-old Natasha Sorochan, both of Dartmouth, near Hearst, Ontario.

Police say the pair were in the stolen truck.

Both are facing charges of break and enter, robbery, theft, and assault with a weapon, among other charges.

The RCMP say Alcorn and Sorochan will appear in court in Nova Scotia at a later date.
