Police investigate home invasion
Officers with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are investigating a home invasion that occurred in Halifax this afternoon.
At 1:27 p.m. police responded to the 0-100 block of Adelaide Avenue and were advised that a man had entered a residence by kicking in the front door and assaulted the 38-year-old male occupant. The victim was able to chase the suspect out of the house and he fled the area in a newer model 4-door bluish-grey BMW sedan that was driven by another man. The victim was treated at the scene for a non-life threatening injury.

The driver of the car is described as a white male. The investigation into this matter is on-going.
