At 5:45 PM Oct 1st a man dressed all in black and wearing a ski mask entered a residence on Douglas St carrying what appeared to be a handgun and a can of bear spray.
He located a man and a woman in the kitchen, demanded their medication and attempted to tie them up with zip ties.
The victims refused and fought back.
During the fight the owners were sprayed with pepper spray but they struck him with a mop and sprayed him in the face with a fire extinguisher until he ran out of the house.
He fled south bound towards High St and is believed to have travelled through peopleâ€™s yards to the 200 block of Norwood Av where police officers located him wearing shorts and running shoes.
