One man was taken to hospital following a violent home invasion Friday in North Kamloops, police say.

Emergency crews were called to a home in the 100-block of Yew Street at about 8:30 p.m. after four men forced their way into the house using bear spray and a baton, RCMP Staff Sgt. Michael Grondin said in a press release.
