Police have charged three people after a man was viciously beaten during a home invasion on Ellis St. E.

The Windsor Police Service says on Friday around noon, the victim, who is a resident at an apartment building in the 50-block of Ellis St., was attacked with a barbell and suffered a laceration to his forearm. His vocal cords were also crushed in the assault.

The male victim remains in hospital but police say his injuries are non-life threatening. Officers have not been able to interview the man due to the injuries he sustained to his vocal cords.

All three suspects have been charged with break and enter and assault with a weapon. Police would not provide any further details about the suspects.
