Three police vehicles were parked outside the home, located at the corner of Lakeview Crescent and Windmill Crescent, Monday night as officers continued their investigation.

Residents in the area told the Tribune police were going door-to-door as part of their investigation, asking questions and telling neighbours a serious assault had occurred.

Pelley noted Tuesday that there is no risk to the public in relation to this case, and the investigation is ongoing.
