Another home invasion took place last night in Kamloops.
Four males wearing masks reportedly forced their way into a Brocklehurst home around 7 p.m. Wednesday night resulting in minor injuries to one of the tenants who was assaulted with an unknown object.
The suspects left the scene on Calmar Place shortly after on foot before a police perimeter was set up and RCMP Canine Unit issued.
Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said they fled the scene.
Two of the male suspects were apprehended after being tracked by the unit.
They were arrested without incident and face charges of break and enter and assault with a weapon.
RCMP are saying the incident is not related to a similar incident that happened two weeks prior on Kemano Street.
"They're not relating it to anything at all," Ward said.
Despite the two incidents, RCMP hope to appease the public with a reminder that they were both targeted incidents.
"These people went in for a specific purpose. The average person is not going to face this," Ward said. "There's a reason it happens, and if you're not going to participate in that lifestyle, it's not going to happen."
