Three people have been charged in connection to a Victoria break-in that landed four people in hospital, the RCMP says.

The Harbour Grace RCMP says officers got a report about a break and enter and assault at a home in the town around 10 p.m. Saturday. Two people who live in the home, along with two of the suspects, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

They were all released from hospital, but the two suspects are now in police custody, along with a third suspect.

Rocky Nicholson, 56, Paul Hanlon, 50, and Jordan Aubie, 27 will appear in court today on charges of break and enter with intent, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and wearing a disguise with intent.

Police continue to investigate the incident, and ask anyone with information to call the Harbour Grace RCMP at 596-5014 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Anonymous tips can also be sent by texting TIP190 and a message to CRIMES (274637) or online at www.nlcrimestoppers.com.
