Two suspects in a Christmas Eve home invasion in Newton.

Two suspects wanted in Surrey home invasion

Police release still images of suspects that were caught on a surveillance camera.

Mounties are appealing to the public for help in finding a pair believed to be responsible for a home invasion on Christmas Eve.

On Dec. 24, at about 2:30 p.m. Surrey RCMP responded to a report of someone who had been assaulted in their home near 72 Avenue and 132 Street.

When police arrived, it was determined that two males had come to the home from the back alley and knocked on the door.

When the resident answered, he was assaulted with a blunt instrument and forced back into the home.

The victim fought the intruders and forced them out of the residence. He received injuries to his head which required stitches. A second person in the home was not injured.

The two suspects were caught on surveillance video.

They are described as black males, 20 to 23 years old, 5’6″, wearing black hoodies, black pants and light-coloured shoes. One of them may have been wearing a balaclava.

One of the men appears to have fur outlining his hoodie and may be wearing a toque underneath.

The motive for the attack is still unclear.

“Even the smallest bit of information that might seem trivial may be the key piece of information that will help identify these persons and result in two dangerous people being held to account for their actions,” says RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
