Vernon RCMP are investigating to see if two home invasions Friday are related.

Police responded at 7:30 a.m. to separate incidents of home invasions, one in the 3900 block of 32nd Street and one in the 3900 block of 27th Avenue.

“In both incidents, unknown persons entered the residences while home owners were present,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“Occupants of both residences suffered non-life-threatening injuries.”

Molendyk said police believe that both incidents were not random in nature, and were targeted at specific residences known to the suspects.

“Police are continuing their investigation to determine if the two incidents are related,” said Molendyk.
