Police are seeking two suspects, one of whom may have been bitten by a dog, in an early-morning home invasion that occurred October 14 in South Glengarry.

Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police officers were called to the home on First Street shortly after 1:30 a.m.

The resident, who was alone in the house, was assaulted by two males after they had broken into the residence.

It's believed at least one of the individuals was bitten by a dog in the home before they fled on foot. The resident was not seriously hurt.

The OPP Canine Unit and OPP Forensic Identification Services Unit are assisting the SD&G OPP Crime Unit with the investigation.

The attackers are described as being dressed identically in black cargo pants, black hoodies and red face coverings. Both are believed to be white with slim builds.
