A 31-year-old man is in custody after another man was attacked inside his Windsor home.

Police say it happened around 10 p.m. Sunday night, in the 700 block of Tuscarora Street.

A 61-year-old man and his wife were watching TV, but had left their back door open. Suddenly, an intruder was there, punching the man in the face.

The victim was able to retaliate and chased the suspect out of the house.

The woman was frantically screaming for neighbours to call the police.

The man was treated for cuts at the hospital.

Police say the attack appears to be random.

The suspect faces charges of break and enter and assault.
