One man has been arrested and RCMP look for two other suspects following a home invasion and robbery in Redcliff in the early morning hours of June 2.
At approximately 4:30 a.m., Redcliff RCMP received a report of suspects trying to kick in a door to an apartment, without success.
According to a statement by the RCMP, the suspect then fled the scene, returning approximately one hour later to the same apartment building and kicked in a separate apartment unit door.
