Man wanted on warrants - violent home invasion

The Calgary Police Service Specialized Offender Unit is seeking public assistance to locate a man wanted on warrants in connection with a violent home invasion in the city’s northwest.

At approximately 11:45 p.m., on Monday, May 15, 2017, an unknown number of men forced their way into a home in the 100 block of Panatella Park N.W. Once inside, the men ransacked the house and repeatedly assaulted two men in the home with both blunt and edged weapons. The victims, a man in his 50s and a teen, were transported to hospital with serious injuries.

There was no one else in the suite at the time of the attack and the suspects fled with property from the residence. Investigators do not believe this was a random attack and are currently exploring possible motives.

Achor JAL, 20, of Calgary, is currently wanted on warrants for five counts of breach of recognizance and one count of break and enter. JAL is described as black, 5’ 10” tall and approximately 190 pounds. A photo of JAL is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

The investigation into the home invasion continues.

The CPS has a robust coordinated strategy in place to address violence within our community. This strategy involves suppression, intelligence and investigative efforts from more than 15 specialty areas across the Service, including the Specialized Offender Unit, along with dedicated analytical support.

Information from the public is crucial to these ongoing efforts and the CPS is urging the public to come forward with any information they may have, either by calling police directly, or contacting Crime Stoppers anonymously:
