Police search for two men involved in home invasion

Gatineau police are looking for two men in their 30s who allegedly tied up a man and woman during a home invasion Saturday evening around 6:15 p.m. on Cartier Street.

Police say it began when a man knocked on the couple's door, asking to use the phone. When he was invited inside, another man appeared and the two men rushed into the house and tied up the woman.

The male resident has minor injuries from the struggle with the intruders before they also tied him up.

After the intruders left, the woman was able to free herself and ran to a neighbour's for help.

The victims were taken to hospital to be treated for shock and minor injuries. Police say they believe theft was the motive, although its not clear if anything was stolen.
