Edmonton police are investigating after an alleged home invasion in the city’s northeast.
Officers were called to a home near 138th Avenue and 66th Street around 12:30 a.m. Friday after several men allegedly forced their way into a townhouse and assaulted three people inside.
Police were told the suspects were wearing masks and armed with weapons when they entered the home, and later fled the scene on foot.
The two males and one female who were in the house at the time of the alleged assault were all transported to hospital where they were treated. One of the males received what police are calling serious but non-life threatening injuries.
A pit bull was also hurt during the alleged incident, and was transported to an emergency clinic for treatment.
Officers from the EPS Canine Unit, Air One and Patrol were enlisted to help track the suspects, who are still at large. Police are now interviewing the victims and neighbours.
Investigators say this does not appear to be a random attack.
