Nova Scotia RCMP are looking for two men who are accused of robbing a house in Cole Harbour and assaulting a woman on Tuesday night.
The woman, who lives on Taranaki Drive, called police at approximately 9 p.m. and said she had opened the door to find a man wearing a Freddy Krueger mask. She immediately shut the door, but the suspect kicked it in and two men entered the house, said RCMP.
The man wearing the mask had a firearm and the other man had a two-by-four in his hand, said police.
RCMP said the men demanded cash and when the woman screamed, she was assaulted by one of the suspects.
The men left the house with some jewelry and a television, which was later found on a pathway behind the house, said police.
Officers don't believe it was a random incident.
The masked suspect is described as a light-skinned black male in his early 20s, about six feet tall and weighing 130 to 150 pounds. He was wearing a red hoodie, dark jeans and a Freddy Krueger mask at the time.
He has a tattoo on the left side of his neck — a round tribal design with lettering in the middle.
The second suspect is described as a light-skinned black male in his early 20s, about six feet tall and weighing 160 to 180 pounds. He was wearing a grey hoodie with a green zipper and dark jeans at the time.
