Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a violent home invasion that took place in 2018.

On November 30, 2018, just before 9 pm, several suspects forced their way into a residence near Ontario and West 49th Avenue.

Police say in a release that the individuals were disguised with hoods and masks. Two of them were armed.

The homeowners, a 56-year-old man and his 35-year-old wife, were restrained and assaulted while their toddler slept upstairs.

Fortunately, the child remained unharmed, however, the husband was treated at the hospital for serious injuries. His wife’s physical injuries were minor.

At this point, the VPD’s Major Crime Section believes that the incident was a planned, targeted robbery involving at least five suspects.

Multiple items from the home were stolen and no arrests were made.

“VPD detectives have exhausted countless leads,” says VPD Sergeant Jason Robillard. “They are hopeful that the high quality of these photos will lead to someone recognizing this suspect.”
