A Vancouver mother and son were assaulted and robbed by two men in their own home on Monday, police say.
A 22-year-old man was stabbed in the neck, and a 27-year old woman was robbed of her wallet and phone.
The two victims were treated at hospital and released, according to Const.
Police were called to a home in the 5200 block of St. Andrews Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. on Monday after receiving a report of an assault.
They found the victim suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
Police believe the two men were armed with a knife, a black-jack and a hammer, Blair said.
The woman was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, and was carrying a black backpack, police said.
She told police the men told her to take off her jacket and then took her phone.
When she refused, one of the men pushed her into the bedroom, and punched her in the head, Blair told reporters.
Police recovered the wallet and the phone from the home.
The mother and three of her children were also at the home, Blair added.
No arrests have been made in the case.
Blair said there are no known gang affiliations in the neighbourhood.
A spokesperson for the Downtown Eastside neighbourhood said there have been no known incidents in the area in recent years.
Police do not believe the robbery was random, Blair noted.
Anyone with information about the attack is asked to contact the Major Crime Unit at 1-877-844-8477.
