COLE HARBOUR - Police are investigating after two men, one wearing a mask, broke into a Cole Harbour residence and assaulted a woman.
Around 9 p.m. Tuesday, RCMP responded to a robbery call from a home on Taranaki Drive.
Police were told the woman living in the residence had opened her door to find a man wearing a Freddy Krueger mask.
She quickly shut the door, but police say the masked suspect kicked it in, and entered the home with another man who carried a two-by-four.
The man wearing the mask also carried a firearm. Police say they demanded cash, and left the residence with jewelry and a television.
The woman screamed, and police say she was assaulted by one of the suspects as they left.
Police later found the TV on a path behind the residence.
The RCMP/Halifax Regional Police integrated general investigative team continues to investigate.
Police do not believe this is a random incident.
The masked suspect is described as a light-skinned black male, late teens to early 20s in age, 6ft, 130-150lbs, wearing red hoodie, dark jeans and the Freddy Krueger mask. He also had a tribal design tattoo on the left side of his neck that was round with lettering in the middle.
The second suspect is described as a light-skinned black male, late teens to early 20′s in age, 6ft, 160-180 lbs wearing a grey hoodie with a green zipper and dark jeans. The suspect was not wearing a mask, and carried a two-by-four.
