A violent home invasion in Queensborough that had three suspects forcibly confining a man in the early morning hours of Monday, June 13 is being investigated by New Westminster police.

A teenage girl and a one-year-old child were also present but unharmed during the incident that occurred about 3:30 a.m. at a residence in the 300 block of Blackley Street. The man suffered injuries but has been released from hospital. The suspects stole a number of valuable coins and precious metals before fleeing the residence. Descriptions of the suspects have not been established at this time, say New Westminster police.

Police are asking for the public's help in solving this crime, particularly if someone comes across the coins. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Mike Holley at 604-529-2453.

New Westminster police also report four of the recovered stolen items, including one of two cameras, from a May 7 arrest in Queensborough have been returned to their rightful owner following recent media coverage.
