Police are seeking the public's help after a home invasion in the 22000 block of Westminster Highway earlier this week.

A man and woman were at home watching television when their doorbell rang around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday (March 23), according to police. When they answered the door, four men barged in armed with a crowbar and a possible firearm. Once inside, the suspects apparently restrained the victims before ransacking their home and leaving with several of the victims’ belongings.

“This was a very frightening incident for the two victims, who were simply enjoying a quiet night at home when it happened,” said Cpl. Ian Henderson. “However, based on the initial investigation, this incident does not appear to have been a random one. It seems the suspects may have had specific targets in mind, but chose the wrong home at the time.”

Police are looking for four suspects, all of whom were wearing dark clothing with hoodies at the time. This investigation is still ongoing. Police are also asking nearby residents to check their home security video systems to see if they may have captured the suspects in the area around the time of the incident.

If you happened to witness this incident or captured it on security video, or if you have information that may help police identify and locate the suspects, contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212, quoting file number 21-7675.
