There is relief in Coniston and throughout Greater Sudbury today as police arrested a suspect in connection to Monday night’s home invasion.

An elderly couple were hurt and the community shook up following the incident.

A suspect used a knife to threaten the couple -both in their 80’s- and cut their phone lines.

The man fled the scene when the woman escaped to the neighbours to call police.

Officers with the Greater Sudbury Police Break, Enter and Robbery (BEAR) Unit arrested a 31-year old man yesterday.

He is charged with Robbery, Aggravated Assault, two counts of Weapons Dangerous and Mischief.
