Two people from Dartmouth are facing several charges after a home was invaded and a truck was stolen last month near Upper Musquodoboit.
RCMP say, either late on June 19 or early on June 20, a man was woken up by someone who had broken into his home on Lemmon Hill Rd. in Dean.
Police say the suspect was armed with a knife and demanded the victim's truck, but then the victim agreed to give a ride to the suspect and a woman who was waiting outside.
At some point during the ride, the victim was able to escape the truck and tried run off. Police say a fight ensued and the suspects were able to grab the keys and take off, leaving the victim roadside with life-threatening injuries.
He was rushed to hospital by EHS.
Several RCMP detachments searched for the truck and police did get a report of it being spotted at a service station in Sackville, New Brunswick.
It was eventually tracked down by Ontario Provincial Police in Northern Ontario, about 250 km northwest of Timmins, with the suspects inside.
Nicholas Steven Alcorn, 30, of Dartmouth and Natasha Noel Sorochan 37, of Dartmouth were taken into custody by the OPP on July 2.

- Break, enter and committing an indictable offence
- Theft over $5,000
- Taking of motor vehicle
- Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
- Assault with a weapon
- Possession of a dangerous weapon
