Seeking public assistance - violent home invasion

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in locating a man responsible for a violent home invasion.

At approximately 1:30 p.m., on Monday, May 9, 2016, an elderly man and woman were in their home in the community of Southwood when it is believed the suspect entered the property through an unlocked patio door.

The suspect was visibly upset and began to argue with the homeowner. The suspect then physically assaulted the male, knocking him to the ground. The woman attempted to pull the suspect off the male and was also pushed. The woman left the room to call 9-1-1 at which time the suspect followed her into her home office and pulled the phone out of the wall. The woman was able to move to another room and call for help.

The suspect left the residence on foot through the patio door.

The man, 68, was taken to hospital and underwent facial reconstructive surgery due to his injuries. The woman, 67, has a possible back injury.

This is not believed to be a random incident, as the suspect and homeowners have had a business relationship in the past.

Peter Robin TAYLOR, 50, has outstanding warrants for break and enter of a dwelling house, common assault and aggravated assault during the break and enter. He is also charged with damage to property.

TAYLOR is approximately 5’10” tall and 240 pounds. He has blackish grey hair and brown eyes.

TAYLOR has an auto mechanics background and may be working as a mobile mechanic.

Anyone who may have information about his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
