Violent home invasion

A violent home invasion last Friday (Oct. 26) has New Westminster police seeking three suspects.

The NWPD says two men and a woman forced their way into a residence in the 600 block of Third Avenue about 7:30 p.m. They were armed with a handgun and an unknown blunt object. They threatened the occupants and at one point struck one of them with what is believed to have been a hammer. The victim was taken to hospital after the suspects fled. They have not been found or identified, but police don't believe it was a random incident.

The female suspect is described as being Caucasian, in her mid 20s, about five-foot-eight with a thin, medium build, dark hair and wearing a dark hoodie. One of the men is described as being in his early to mid-30s, five-foot-seven, thin, a dirty blond crewcut, and wearing a dark hoodie and dark sweatpants. The other is in his late 20s, about six-foot-one, thin, and wearing a grey hoodie with an off-white pattern around the hood.

They were seen fleeing in an older model dark-coloured, four-door vehicle.

Anyone with information on the incident should contact Sgt. Rob Boyd or Det. Const. Elmario Cahambing of the NWPD major crime unit at 604-525-5411 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222.-8477.
