The 700 block of Tuscarora as seen in Google Maps

UPDATE: The suspect left the area in a vehicle. Neighbours provided police with a detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle.

The suspect was located in a parking lot in the 600 block of Aylmer Avenue. The suspect ran across the lot and jumped over a fence. Officers chased him and were able to catch him. He was placed under arrest. He suffered a small contusion on his head from the altercation with the homeowner.

Ravi Seecharan, 30 years of age from Windsor, is charged with Break and Enter, Assault with a weapon, and Assault.

Original story:

Windsor Police have a man in custody after he allegedly invaded a home in the 700 block of Tuscarora, Sunday evening.

Shortly after 10pm, Police responded to the 700 block of Tuscarora for a report of a man and woman screaming.

Police determined that the home invasion took place when a 61-year-old man and his wife were sitting in the rear of their home watching television with the rear door open. Suddenly out of nowhere, Police say a male was inside their home and started assaulting the male resident.

The suspect reportedly punched the male numerous times in the face. The resident was able to retaliate and eventually the attacker fled out of the house with the male resident chasing him. The female resident who was clearly frantic was screaming for neighbours to call police. She was shaken but not physically injured.

The male resident received a number of lacerations to his face and was taken to hospital where he was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say a description of the suspect was sent out to patrol units in the area and in short order the 31-year-old male suspect was apprehended without incident nearby.

Police say he is currently in custody and will be potentially be facing charges of break and enter and assault.

Police Staff Sergeant Steve Bodri indicated that the home invasion appears to have been random and it is unknown why this male targeted this residence.
