Teen allegedly assaulted during home break-in

A 17-year-old Oshawa teen suffered minor injuries after allegedly being assaulted by a suspect who broke into an Oshawa home.

On Monday, Aug. 13, at approximately 5 p.m. members from Central East Division responded to a residence on Lakeview Park Avenue in Oshawa for a break and enter.
