The Service de police de la Ville de Montréal  (SPVM) are seeking out the public to help identify two suspects who posed as pizza delivery men in order to commit a home invasion this past summer.

Authorities say the invasion took place at 7:45 pm on July 18 at a home in the east end of Montreal.

According to the SPVM’s news release, two men arrived at the victim’s door, pretending to be delivery men. As she opened the door, the two men entered the home and attacked her.

After the attack, they fled towards Dubuisson Street by the Annie-Pelletier municipal pool.

Police describe one of the suspects as a black man, about 25 years old. He stands at 5 feet 11 inches, with an “athletic build.” At the time of the crime, he had short hair and spoke French.

No information was given in regards to the second suspect.

Police have set up a mobile command post at the corner of Notre-Dame Street East and Joffre Street, hoping to speak to possible witnesses or anyone who may have information about the home invasion and attack.

Members of the SPVM will be at the post until 9 pm on Wednesday night.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or Info-Crime at 514-393-1133.

Sun Youth is also putting forward a $5,000 reward for anyone who gives information that leads to the arrest and conviction of both suspects.
