Three un­known male sus­pects are wanted af­ter a home in­va­sion rob­bery. Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice, Hold Up Unit is seek­ing as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing the sus­pects, who forced their way into the home of a 67-year old male vic­tim.

“The Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) is ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic for as­sis­tance lo­cat­ing and iden­ti­fy­ing the sus­pects de­scribed in the home in­va­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” said Ka­t­rina Ar­ro­gante, me­dia re­la­tions spokesper­son for TPS.

On Thurs­day, Sept. 27, at ap­prox­i­mately 7:15 a.m. the vic­tim an­swered a knock on his door in the Eglin­ton Av­enue West and Yonge Street area. He was con­fronted by three armed as­sailants, wear­ing con­struc­tion vests, hard hats and dust masks. They were also car­ry­ing a blue and white cooler.

The sus­pects al­legedly over­pow­ered the vic­tim and en­tered the home. They tied up the owner, mak­ing de­mands for money and other valu­ables and con­tin­u­ing to as­sault him.

The three sus­pects then pro­ceeded to ran­sack the home but failed to ob­tain any­thing of value. They were seen flee­ing the premises in what is be­lieved to be a grey or blue Nis­san Max­ima.

The vic­tim was able to free him­self once the sus­pects were gone and con­tacted the po­lice im­me­di­ately. Of­fi­cers ar­rived on the scene to find the vic­tim sev­erly in­jured.

Iden­ti­fy­ing these men is cru­cial for po­lice so that they can pur­sue fur­ther ac­tion. Se­cu­rity footage of the three sus­pects was realeased and any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact TPS.
