Calgary, AB,

Investigation into overnight home invasions

Two overnight home invasions are currently under investigation by the Calgary Police Service General Investigation Section.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., today, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016, police were called to the 0-100 block of Springborough Point S.W., for reports that multiple men had forced their way into a residence. The suspects demanded money from the victim before striking him with an object and fleeing with money and personal property.

One person was injured as a result and was treated by EMS at the scene and released.

The first suspect was described as black, in his mid-20s, approximately 5’9” tall, with a slim build, a goatee and a moustache. He was wearing a grey hoodie and blue jeans.

A second suspect is described as a man, approximately 6’ tall, wearing a red and black hoodie.

Following this incident, police were called to a residence in the 600 block of 19 Street N.E., at approximately 2:50 a.m., for reports that two men had forced their way into a home, demanded cash and injured two victims.

One victim from this incident was taken to hospital in serious but stable condition with what is believed to be injuries as a result of a stabbing. The second victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The descriptions of suspects in this incident are believed to match the first two of the home invasion that took place at 12:30 a.m. Investigators are working to confirm if the two are in fact related, and if the suspects are the same people responsible for both incidents.

At this time police believe the incidents are not random in nature, however, the investigation into what motivated the incidents is still ongoing.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
