Two people have been taken into custody following reports of a string of violent incidences in Orillia.

The OPP say two suspects forced their way into a home on Coldwater Road around 12:30 Wednesday morning and assaulted one of the residents there. A vehicle was stolen, used to flee the scene and proceed to a business on Atherley Road. That’s where OPP say an edged weapon and blunt objects were used to rob the business. The pair then fled the scene.

The Emergency Response and K9 Units helped zero in on the pair who were then taken into custody. The investigation continues.
