Around 4 a.m. on May 15, police received a report of a home invasion involving five masked men with weapons, including possible firearms. The men forced their way into the residence, restrained four people present in the home at the time, and demanded drugs.

Police forensics teams attended the scene to look for evidence. Officers continue to conduct neighbourhood enquiries in search of more information.

The five suspects were described as wearing masks, bandanas, and hooded jackets.
