Three Hamilton people are assisting police with their inquiries after an alleged home invasion was reported on Tuesday night.
Detective Sergeant Mark James, of the Hamilton police crime investigation unit, said the aggravated burglary was reported to police about 8pm Tuesday night at a Tyers Street address in Hamilton.
He said a warrant was executed by police officers at a Dempster Drive property on Wednesday morning and three people were now assisting police with their inquiries - a 42-year-old man, a 34-year-old woman and a teenage male.
"The complainant, the occupant of the Tyers Street home, suffered bruising and soreness," he said.
"We're trying to get to the bottom of a convoluted tale."
