A 27-year-old man was rushed to hospital in critical condition -- later upgraded to stable -- following a home invasion and assault early Sunday morning.

At approximately 1:45 a.m., a lone male pushed his way into a residential suite on the 1000 block of Bairdmore Boulevard after the unknown intruder had knocked on the door.

The suspect shoved his way into the suite, which was occupied by a man and woman.

The intruder began assaulting the male. The female occupant attempted to intervene, biting the suspect on the right hand.

The suspect fled after robbing the couple of a cellphone.

Police report the suspect is described as Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old, 6-0 with a medium build and very short light brown hair.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
