A 33-year-old man was arrested this week in connection with a violent home invasion in Montreal’s east end earlier this summer.

Montreal police say there were several suspects involved — they are still searching for two others.

Const. Véronique Comtois says a woman was attacked by two men who were pretending to delivery pizza to her home in Tétraultville on July 18.

The man who was arrested on Wednesday allegedly orchestrated the crime. He is the victim’s former boyfriend, according to police.
