A man has been arrested after a violent break-in at a Winnipeg senior home that saw a 94-year-old woman punched in the face and an 81-year-old man attacked with bug-spray and a broom handle.

Police say a man was able to sneak into the seniors complex in the 200-block of Pacific Avenue after someone left through the building’s front door around 4 p.m. March 21.

They say he then roamed through the building, checking doors for open suites.
