3 more men charged in New Bothwell home invasion
RCMP have charged three more men in connection with a home invasion near New Bothwell, Man., early this week.
The three men, all 19 years old, each face a number of charges related to Sunday's home invasion, including multiple weapons-related offences.
Two of the men are charged with robbery with a firearm, extortion with a firearm and assault with a weapon.
One of the men is from Winnipeg, while the other two are from Steinbach, Man., RCMP said in a release Friday.
Earlier this week, police arrested two men, aged 20 and 22, from Blumenort, Man., in connection with the same incident.
According to police, three or four men, wearing black balaclavas and carrying guns, forced their way into a camper where a woman was living at around 2:30 a.m. CT Sunday.
Police said the men pepper-sprayed the woman and forced her into the back room, where one suspect held her at gunpoint while the others rummaged through the camper.
The suspects also entered a home where the woman's six-year-old child was staying, RCMP alleged.
The group stole electronic devices from both the home and the camper before they fled the area in a vehicle, according to police.
