Police said two suspects, armed with a gun, forced their way into a home in the area.

Once inside, police said the suspects pointed the weapon at a man inside the home and assaulted him before stealing items of value and fleeing the scene in the victim’s vehicle.

The victim was treated at the scene for minor injuries, according to police.

On Monday, officers arrested a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old man, both from Mississauga, after executing two search warrants.
