Lynn Lake RCMP are looking for two male suspects who assaulted and robbed a 69-year-old man in his own home April 30.

Lynn Lake RCMP are investigating an April 30 home invasion in which a senior citizen was robbed and assaulted.

Police were called to a Sherritt Avenue residence shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday night. A 69-year-old man had been at home alone when his house was broken into and he was robbed and assaulted by two male suspects.

The victim was hurt during the attack but his injuries were not life-threatening and he was taken to the hospital for treatment.

One of the suspects police believe was involved in this incident is described as short and overweight, dressed in a grey hoodie and black pants. The other suspect was dressed all in black, including a black mask and a black bandana.

Lynn Lake RCMP say it is possible that one of the suspects goes by the nickname “Sly.”
