Instead of an alarm clock, an owner of a Salmon Arm residence awoke to find two men in his house brandishing baseball bats and a double-edged, serrated knife.
The incident took place at approximately 1 a.m. on May 3, when police received an abandoned 911 call from a cellular phone.
Police traced the owner of the of the cell phone to a resident in the 600 block of 2nd Ave. NE.
At this time, it was determined that the owner of the home had been sleeping and was awakened to a home invasion. Two men had smashed a window to gain entry to the home. The men were wearing black balaclavas and brandishing the weapons.
The resident was unharmed, but the men took a number of items including electronics.
A police dog and handler were called in and the RCMP tracked the men to a residence on 2nd Street SE. At this residence, one man was arrested, while a second man attempted to flee out the rear door and jump over a nearby fence.
The man was arrested following a short foot chase.
All stolen property from the home invasion has been recovered and police also found a small quantity of cocaine.
Two men, both from Salmon Arm, remain in police custody. Criminal charges are pending.
