SURREY — Three men have been charged in a “targeted break and enter” that happened in Newton on July 19. Police arrested two suspects but are still looking for the third.

Robert Wyatt, 39, of Vancouver is charged with break and enter, assault, assault causing bodily harm and breaching his probation. Roy Houghton, 28, of Surrey is charged with assaulting an individual lawfully detaining a person and Andres Naranjo, 23, of Burnaby is charged with break and enter, assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Police are still looking for Naranjo, described as Hispanic, five feet seven inches talk and 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. They ask anyone who knows where he is to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Corporal Scotty Schumann said police had received a report of an assault in the 6600-block of 124A Street at about 11:45 a.m. on July 19.

“Officers determined that an altercation had occurred between two occupants of the home and two suspects who attempted to enter the residence,” he said. The fight spilled out onto the street where neighbours grabbed one man and held him until police arrived. The other took off in a car.

Schumann said the two residents and suspect were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries not life-threatening.

Photographer Shane MacKichan said it appeared to have been a botched robbery with one of the culprits being beaten down with a baseball bat.
