Guns Recovered Following Violent Home Invasion

Brantford Police have located two firearms during their continued investigation into a home invasion robbery Monday night. Following a ground search with the assistance of the Guelph Police K9 unit, the firearms were found a short distance away from the residence.

Brantford Police have charged two males. Gideon Bonsu, a 26 year old male from Brampton, faces robbery and numerous weapons charges. Terence Watson, a 33 year old male from Mississauga, is also facing weapons and robbery charges, as well as breach of recognizance and possession contrary to court order. A third suspect is still at large.

Brantford Police responded to a 9-1-1 call from a residence on Sarah Street at approximately 9:00pm on Monday night where three armed men had broken into a residence with firearms. There were four people in the home at the time and one was assaulted.

Gunshots were fired by the suspects outside as they fled. Brantford Police enlisted help from the Woodstock K9 Unit where they located the victims. One victim was treated for minor injuries. The K9 Unit searched, tracked and located two suspects hiding on nearby properties. They were arrested without incident.

Police do not believe the incident to be a random act and continue to investigate. The major crime unit is asking for any residents in the area with home security footage to contact them.
