Four suspects sought in Langley home invasion

The police were able to obtain surveillance material showing people wanted in connection with a home invasion that took place on Sept. 8.

The Langley RCMP has released photos in case the public can help identify the people in them.

The home invasion took place at an apartment building in the 5600 block of 201A Street.

At about 3:15 a.m., the victim responded to a knock at his door and opened the door to a young female.

“Once the door was opened, three males forced themselves into the apartment,” said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. “The victim was ordered to be quiet and instructed to sit in a chair. One of the suspects struck him several times leaving a mark and swelling on his face. The victim was held at knife point while the remaining suspects rummaged through the apartment.”

A number of items were taken from the residence including a Blackberry Playbook, two laptop computers, the victim’s wallet, several wristwatches and two Masonic rings.

Police have obtained video surveillance of the suspects as they entered the foyer of the building. Investigators would like the public to view the attached still photographs to assist police with identification of the suspects.

Female: Caucasian, early 20s, 5’6”, slim build, shoulder length blonde or light brown hair, wearing a long black zip up hoody with writing on the sleeves and the back, blue jeans and flip flops.

Male 1: Caucasian, bald, 25-35 years old, 6’, muscular build, clean shaven, wearing a ¾ length black coat, blue jeans.

Male 2: Caucasian, 25 years old, slim build, brown hair, wearing a dark coloured T-shirt, green ball cap, blue jeans and dark coloured running shoes.

Male 3: Non-white (possibly First Nations or Hispanic), olive coloured complexion, 5’9” to 6’0”, medium length brown hair, slender clean shaven, wearing dark coloured Adidas track pants with three stripes down the leg.

Police believe the suspects were driving a GMC Jimmy or Chevy Blazer type vehicle.
