Do You Recognize This Man? Vancouver Police Release Photos Of 2018 Violent Home Invasion Suspect

Darpan News Desk, 12 Jul, 2019
  • Do You Recognize This Man? Vancouver Police Release Photos Of 2018 Violent Home Invasion Suspect

Vancouver Police have released security photos of a suspect involved in a 2018 home invasion, hoping to identify the man.


Shortly before 9 p.m., on November 30, 2018, several suspects, disguised with hoods and masks, forced their way into a residence near Ontario 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 treated at hospital for serious injuries, while his wife’s physical injuries were minor. The child was unharmed.


Investigators with the VPD’s Major Crime Section believe this was a planned and targeted robbery, and that there were at least five suspects involved. Several articles from the home were stolen and no arrests have been 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.”


Anyone with information about this home invasion, or who knows the identity of this man, is asked to call Vancouver Police at 604-717-2541. Anonymous reports can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
