Suspects in Dean home invasion arrested in Ontario

Two people from Dartmouth have been charged in connection with a home invasion in a rural area of the Halifax Regional Municipality last month, RCMP announced Thursday.

Nicholas Alcorn, 30, and Natasha Sorochan 37, were arrested July 2 near Hearst, Ont.

An RCMP news release said Ontario Provincial Police apprehended the pair in a truck that had been stolen from the victim of the home invasion.

The incident happened in the overnight hours of June 19 and 20 after a man broke into a house in Dean.

The suspect, who had a knife, demanded the male victim’s truck. The victim agreed to drive the suspect and a woman who was waiting outside to the Dartmouth area.

The victim managed to get out of the truck in Colchester County and an altercation ensued. The suspects got the keys and left with the truck.

Police found the victim and paramedics transported him to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Several RCMP detachments were notified of the incident and attempted to locate the truck. It was spotted that night at a service station in Sackville, N.B.

Alcorn and Sorochan are both charged with break and enter, robbery, theft over $5,000, taking a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property over $5,000, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose and two counts of breaching a recognizance.

The pair will appear in court in Nova Scotia at a later date, RCMP said.
