Dauphin residents threatened, assaulted during robberies and break-ins: Manitoba RCMP

Manitoba RCMP say residents in Dauphin were threatened and assaulted after a spate of home invasions and robberies last week.

On Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., police responded to reports of a man who was assaulted and robbed in the back lane behind Railway Avenue by two unknown men wearing balaclavas.

One of the suspects pulled out a weapon and assaulted the man before stealing money from his pocket. Both of the suspects then ran away.

The next day at close to 1 a.m., police learned about three masked individuals who had forced their way into a home in the 100 block of 4th Avenue SE.

Police say the residents in the home attempted to push the intruders out the door and were sprayed with bear spray before the suspects fled the area.
