Home invaders tied up woman

An Aldergrove woman was bound with duct tape during a home invasion last June, say the Langley RCMP.

Just before noon on June 12, two men approached the home and said they were in the neighbourhood investigating a gas leak.

They forced their way into the home and tied up the lone woman inside.

The two men then searched through drawers, taking two small jewelry boxes. They fled in a dark grey compact SUV or crossover-type vehicle, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The victim was not injured, said Marks.

The woman has now worked with a police sketch artist, and the RCMP has released a sketch of one of the suspects.

Both men are described as Indo-Canadian, between 5’9” and 5’10”, with short dark hair. One man was wearing a blue hoodie, grey sweatpants and grey Nike running shoes.

Police are asking the public to look at the composite, and if they recognize the man or know anything about the home invasion, call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or visit www.solvecrime.ca or text BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637).
