Vancouver police have released photos of a suspect in a 2018 home invasion, in hopes the public will be able to help identify the man.
Just before 9 p.m. on Nov. 30, several suspects, disguised with hoods and masks, forced their way into a home near Ontario Street and West 49th Avenue. Two of the men were armed.
The homeowners, a 56-year-old man and his 35-year-old wife, were restrained and assaulted while their toddler slept upstairs. The husband was taken to hospital with serious injuries, while the wife’s physical injuries were minor. The child was not harmed.
Several items from the home were stolen.
Investigators believe the robbery was planned and targeted, and that there were at least five suspects involved.
No arrests have been made.
“VPD detectives have exhausted countless leads,” said media relations officer Sgt. Jason Robillard. “They are hopeful that the high quality of these photos will lead to someone recognizing this suspect.”
Anyone with information about the home invasion, or who knows the identity of this man, is asked to call Vancouver police at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
