There was heavy police presence reported in the area of Mackenzie Street late Tuesday night in response to what is being described as an "isolated" home invasion.
Greater Sudbury Police said on Twitter they received reports four suspects had attempted to break into a home in the area while carrying a baton.
No injuries have been reported.
A dog track was issued in response, which ultimately led to an abandoned jacket where suspects left the scene in a vehicle.
Further investigation has led police to believe this to be an isolated incident, with no safety concerns for the greater public.
No further information has been released by police.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Greater Sudbury Police at 705-675-9171 or Crime Stoppers at 705-222-TIPS (8477) or www.sudburycrimestoppers.com.
