RCMP release sketches of suspects in Coquitlam home invasion

Two people were hurt in the 2018 incident

Coquitlam RCMP are renewing their plea for information about a home invasion last year.

On Tuesday, police released two new suspect sketches from a home invasion that took place in the 600 block of Poirier Street around 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 9, 2018.

Police got a 911 call that three men had broken through the front door. Three people were home at the time and two of them received minor injuries.

The first suspect is described as 20 to 30 years old, South Asian, of medium height and build, with a short, well-defined beard, short dark brown hair and dark eyes. He was wearing a track suit with red and white features and a high-visibility vest.

The second is described as a 40- to 50-year-old Caucasian man of shorter-than-average height with a large, stocky and muscular build. He has light blue or green eyes with brown hair and was wearing a toque and a high-visibility orange jacket.

The third man is described as tall and slim, dressed in all black. Police did not release a sketch for him.

RCMP said the victims were not known to them and the break-in is not considered part of a wider conflict.
