BROCKVILLE – Detectives continue their investigation into a home invasion which occurred overnight in the city’s south end.
Sometime between 1:00 – 3:00 a.m. unknown suspects entered an Orchard Street residence and surprised one of the occupants as they entered the home. A suspect carrying an unidentified weapon in his hand confronted the victim and demanded to know where the other people in the house were.
