On October 22, 2019, shortly after midnight, Police received a 9-1-1 call for three suspects that had entered a residence in the area of Upper Wellington Street and Brucedale Avenue. The suspects ransacked the residence and confronted a female occupant who was sleeping in a bedroom. The male occupant returned to the residence shortly after and was confronted by one of the suspects who was armed with a firearm.
