Two people are facing charges and a third suspect is being sought after a terrifying home invasion this week on the Mississauga First Nation.
The ordeal began late in the evening Oct. 6 at a residence on Village Road within the First Nation.
"A couple had pulled into their driveway," Blind River Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Friday. "As they were getting out of their vehicle and making their way into the residence, a dark coloured sedan pulled in behind them. One victim was assaulted while attempting to stop three people from entering the residence."
The other victim was assaulted inside the house by two people, police said.
"One of the persons brandished a handgun during the assault. A cellphone was taken from that victim. Two of the three people were known to the victims."
Police were called at 2 p.m. Oct. 7, and at 5:50 p.m., police saw the suspect vehicle on Youngfox Road in Blind River. Two of the suspects were arrested, while a third is still being sought.
A 22-year-old from Garden River First Nation is charged with robbery using a firearm, break and enter, two counts of assault, and one count of uttering death threats.
The accused was in the Ontario Court of Justice Bail Court in Blind River on Oct. 8 and was remanded into custody.
A 26-year-old from Toronto is charged with robbery using a firearm, break and enter, assault, uttering death threats and forcible confinement.
The accused was released from custody and is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Blind River on Nov. 5.
Anyone with information regarding the third suspect in the home invasion is asked to contact the Mississauga First Nation Police Service or the Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122.
