A vicious assault on two seniors has many people in Selkirk shaken up.
An 88-year-old man and an 85-year-old woman were attacked in their home Sunday evening.
Selkirk Mayor Larry Johannson says unfortunately, it just shows that crime can hit anywhere.
“As we all know, there’s crime everywhere. Every community has it, every city, every town, every municipality. But when it happens in your own municipality, it still really, really hits the heart hard.”
Soon after finding the couple, RCMP got a call about a suspicious man in the neighbourhood and picked him up.
No word yet on charges as police say their investigation is ongoing.
The elderly couple is in hospital in stable condition.
