Two men have been charged following an alleged home invasion at a Sooke River Road residence on July 7.

At around 6:10 p.m., Sooke RCMP received a call from a panicked female saying that two men were in her house.

RCMP responded to the scene and information was gathered along the way to believe the suspects were associated to a small gray sedan.

Police later located the car and the suspects were arrested.

Twenty-three-year-old Lucas Cruickshanks is charged with unlawfully in a dwelling house, while 22-year-old Kasper Handspiker, who is also associated to a Westshore RCMP investigation, is charged with unlawfully in a dwelling house and possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose.

The female driver was released without charges.
