East St. Paul RCMP are investigating an armed home invasion in the RM of St. Clements that saw the homeowners – both in their 70s – menaced by a pair of armed suspects.

This comes on the heels of a violent carjacking in the area Tuesday morning.

The home invasion took place just after midnight on Rebeck Road in St. Clements. Police said the homeowners answered the door after the suspects repeatedly rang the bell, then kicked it open after the homeowners asked them to leave.
