Calgary, AB,

Police investigating attempted home invasion in southeast

The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s help to find an attempted home invasion suspect connected to an incident yesterday.

At approximately 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, 2015, a man came to the door of a residence in the community of Sundance and told the resident that he was there on behalf of a home energy company. The resident said she was not interested and closed the door.

Several minutes later, the doorbell rang again and the same man told the resident that he had a brochure he wanted to leave with her. He then produced a gun, pointed it at her and said, “This is a robbery.” Instead of going back into the residence, the victim pushed past the man and ran into the street yelling for help. The man then fled the scene.

The man is described as Asian, 25 to 30 years old, 5’10” to 6’ tall, with a slim build. He was clean-shaven with short hair, and was wearing a black baseball cap, black sunglasses and a black nylon track suit. When fleeing the scene, the man got into a newer-model, silver 4-door sedan.

Anyone who may also have had contact with the man, or who has information about the man’s identity is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
