Officers arrived to learn that a man and a woman had broken into a residence and were confronted by a male tenant.

Police said the suspects were armed with knives and allegedly attacked the tenant, resulting in serious injuries.

On Saturday evening, police identified the two suspects and released their photos.

Police said 38-year-old Christopher Chisolm and 30-year-old Amy Halliday are wanted for break and enter, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, robbery with a weapon and possessing a weapon for committing an offence.

Chisolm is also wanted for possessing a prohibited weapon. The suspects and the victim are known to each other, police told CP24 on Saturday morning.
