BRANTFORD - Woodstock Police were called into help with a home invasion in Brantford.
The call came in on Monday night after a home invasion on Sarah Street. Three people broke into the home and were armed with guns. Four people were inside the home during the invasion, and one of them was assaulted. The three suspects fled the scene on foot.
