Police say they initially arrested five people, including two young offenders. All are in police custody. Several of the charges include breaking and entering as well as assault using a weapon.

Police were on the lookout for two other people, who were both later arrested and taken into police custody on Wednesday.

A second victim, a 47-year-old man, was also rushed to hospital with minor injuries. He has since been released.
