Ar­rests made in home in­va­sion

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMILTON SPEC­TA­TOR NI­A­GARA FALLS —

A Hamilton man has been ar­rested in Ni­a­gara Falls fol­low­ing a re­port of a vi­o­lent home in­va­sion.

Ni­a­gara po­lice re­sponded to the area of Forsythe Street and Slater Av­enue in the Falls at 5 a.m. Satur­day. Po­lice said they found a vi­o­lent strug­gle had taken place be­tween the lone oc­cu­pant of the res­i­dence and four to six sus­pects who had forced their way in — and that the strug­gle in­volved weapons.

Po­lice say this was not a ran­dom act and the res­i­dence had been tar­geted. Po­lice add that while they were at the res­i­dence, the vic­tim, a 24-year-old Ni­a­gara Falls man, as­saulted the of­fi­cers and he was sub­se­quently ar­rested. The sus­pects had fled the scene be­fore po­lice ar­rived, but a short time later, two men who ar­rived at a lo­cal hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries were found to be sus­pects in the home in­va­sion.

Charged with rob­bery are Cody Tay­lor, 28, of Hamilton and Derek Horth, 25, of Ni­a­gara Falls.
