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.

Suspect #2 is described as: male with a dark complexion, approximately 35 to 40 years old, 5’ 8” and 275 lbs. He had a 1”-long curly hair and a grey beard, and was wearing a plaid long-sleeve shirt, reflective vest and dark jeans.

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.

Anyone with new information is asked to contact D/Cst. Dalziel of the Central West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1832.
