Two residents on Bowen Road were assaulted in a home invasion on Tuesday night and a suspect in the case remained at large as of Wednesday afternoon.
Police were called to the 600 block of Bowen at approximately 6 p.m. on Tuesday after a man, accompanied by two others, forced his way into their home armed with a two-by-four and allegedly punched them.
The man was described as a non-risk to the public, between 35 and 45 years of age, stocky with short black hair and First Nations in descent.
An attempt to arrest the man on Tuesday was unsuccessful and police say they have requested a warrant.
"The male was identified to us," said detachment spokesman Const. Gary O'Brien.
"Because of the fact there was a lot of traffic at the time, we didn't get the police dog going. No visible injuries to people in the home, they declined an ambulance."
Police believe the event was a targeted attack.
The door on the home was kicked in and the man was accompanied by a white male aged 25-30 with short brown hair and a tall woman with brown hair.
The man, believed to have punched the residents, could face charges that include two counts of assault, break and enter and uttering threats.
"There's a past relationship between people in the home (and the suspect)," said O'Brien. "It is unknown if anything was taken and as to why they were assaulted."
A photo of the suspect will likely be released if a warrant is issued and he eludes capture, O'Brien said.
