Investigators with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are investigating after two suspects forced their way into a Dartmouth residence earlier today.
At 11:06 a.m., police responded to the 0-100 block of Primrose Street for a break and enter in progress. Four residents were home when two masked suspects, each armed with a firearm, entered the apartment. The victims were not injured during the incident and were able to call police after the suspects fled the area on foot empty handed. This is not believed to be a random incident.
The first suspect is described as a tall, thin white man. He was wearing a black wool mask and a blue and white shirt. The second male suspect was wearing a maroon mask.
