Po­lice search­ing for four sus­pects in armed home in­va­sion and rob­bery

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hamil­ton po­lice have re­leased sus­pect de­scrip­tions of four men wanted fol­low­ing an armed home in­va­sion on Roxbor­ough Av­enue Satur­day.

The men, who were armed with what ap­peared to be a gun and an “edged weapon,” ar­rived at the home shortly be­fore 11 p.m., look­ing for “in­di­vid­u­als,” po­lice said.

They ap­proached one vic­tim who left the house, stole car keys and then en­tered the house.

The sus­pects al­legedly stole a small amount of cash be­fore the vic­tim was able to run away and call for help.

They fled in a stolen black 2011 Nis­san Al­tima.

This is the sec­ond time the home, near Strat­hearne Av­enue, has been at­tacked in two months. On March 22 a 34-year-old man was se­ri­ously in­jured dur­ing a home in­va­sion when two men armed with an edged weapon forced their way into the house de­mand­ing drugs and money.

It’s not clear if the two rob­beries are re­lated. In both cases po­lice searched the neigh­bour­hood, but found no sus­pects.

In the Satur­day home in­va­sion the sus­pects are de­scribed as:

A black man in his 20s, six-foot, slim build and wear­ing dark cloth­ing;

A His­panic man in his 20s, short and wear­ing dark cloth­ing;

A black man in his 50s, with a heavy build and wear­ing dark cloth­ing;

A black man de­scribed as wear­ing dark cloth­ing.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Det. Const. Greg Mills at 905-546-2957, or to re­main anony­mous call Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477.
