When police responded to a break-in call the other day in northeast Minneapolis, the home they visited was giving off such a nasty smell that they thought they'd stumbled onto a meth lab.
Witnesses told police they saw two men dressed in what appeared to be a Haz-Mat suits force their way into the home. Moments later, a young woman fell down outside the back door and screamed before being dragged back into the house.Once inside the home, police say they found a pot-growing operation. They're looking for the injured couple.
A witness told WCCO two men went to help and saw that the victims, a young man and woman, were covered in blood and what seemed like pepper spray or mace. As a neighbor comforted the victims the two men chased the attackers, who began removing their protective suits and dropping cash. Police arrested the assailants with the help of the men.
