A man and woman were arrested in Gatineau Sunday morning after two home invasions north of Buckingham, Que. over the Easter weekend.

Daniel Claude Gauvreau, 46, was taken into custody at a residence on Rue Mareng�re. Martine Villeneuve, 33, was arrested in a vehicle in Hull.

A 73-year-old man was struck with a blunt object - and perhaps hit with pepper spray - by two attackers after opening the door to his home on Chemin Butler in L'Ange Gardien on Friday morning.

The French-speaking suspects, one male and one female, fled with cash in a car. The victim was taken to Buckingham hospital with minor injuries. A woman was also inside the house but left without being injured.

Another incident was reported on Sunday.

The two arrested persons are known to police and face charges of break and enter, robbery, assault with a weapon causing injury, and uttering threats.
