Peel Regional Police just arrested and charged two people allegedly involved with a home invasion that happened earlier this week in Mississauga.

At around 3 a.m. on November 23, officers report that some victims (it is not disclosed how many) were inside a house in the Confederation Parkway and Rathburn Road area.

Police say that multiple suspects went inside armed with firearms, where they reportedly tied up the victims' hands with zip ties and duct tape. One of the victims was also assaulted, but police say that no physical injuries were sustained as a result of the home invasion.

Police report that the victims' cellphones and laptops were stolen, as were two of their vehicles.

With the help of the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force, Peel Police arrested two 25-year-old men allegedly connected to the home invasion.

Ajax residents Mark-Anthony De Silva and Trevee Raympre have been charged with robbery, use of an imitation firearm, wearing a disguise, and possession of stolen property.

Hamilton also dealt with a home invasion this year

Back in September, Hamilton Police were called down to the Mount Hope area after receiving reports of a shooting. When police arrived, they found two men in their 20s suffering from gunshot wounds, and a third was forcibly taken away from the house by a dark SUV.

Police reported that Hasnain Ali, one of the young men, died from his injuries. Meanwhile, his father, Faqir Ali — the man who was taken away in the SUV — was "violently assaulted" and found near Beach Boulevard in Hamilton.

Investigators on this case charged Antoine Chambers, 25, with the first-degree murder of Hasnain Ali, as well as attempted murder, kidnapping and aggravated assault in connection with this incident. Police have also charged him with multiple firearms-related charges.
