GOSHEN: A man and a woman were arrested and charged after in connection with a home invasion in Guysborough County last weekend.

At 7:26 a.m. on May 7, Guysborough District RCMP received a 911 call that two people attempted to force their way into a residence on Highway 316. They were unsuccessful, and left in a vehicle.

No one was hurt and the suspects did not gain entry into the home. The suspects and victim were known to one another, and this was not a random act.
