Violent Home Invasion in Whitby

In Police Blotter

A 24-year-old male was assaulted by two unknown suspects in his home in the Garrard Road and Manning Road area of Whitby.

On Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at approximately 1:30 p.m., the victim was in his home when he answered a knock at the front door. A male holding a handgun pushed his way into the residence and a second suspect also entered. The armed suspect pistol whipped the victim several times and demanded money. Nothing was obtained by the suspects, who fled in a vehicle that was parked in the driveway.

The victim attended a local hospital for treatment of his serious but non-life threatening injuries and called police.

Suspect #1 is described as: male, black, 6’4” tall, approximately 28 to 35 years old, and 250 to 300 lbs. Wearing a hat, reflective vest, black sweater and black pants. He had a scruffy black beard.

The suspect vehicle is described as an older model black Nissan Altima or Maxima four-door or similar sedan with tinted windows.

Police do not believe this is a random incident.
