Trail RCMP report violent home invasion

Trail RCMP report violent break and enter

Trail police are asking witnesses to come forward after a home invasion left three people with injuries late Friday.

On May 22 at 11:38 p.m., the Trail RCMP received a 9-1-1 call of a violent break and enter in progress at a residence on Reservoir Road.

“Police were told that two unknown male suspects had forced entry inside the home and allegedly assaulted three occupants inside,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich reported in a Monday news brief.

Both suspects were reported to be wearing black masks.

Wicentowich says one was seen brandishing a baseball bat and the other was armed with a baton.

“Our investigators believe this was a targeted incident and not random in nature,” he stated.

“The suspects reportedly fled the area in an unknown vehicle prior to police arrival at the scene.”

The perpetrators are both described as Caucasian, approximately 5’6 to 6’0 tall, and with medium to heavy builds.

The men are suspected to be 20 to 30 years old.

Besides covering their faces in black masks, police say both suspects were wearing black hooded sweatshirts and jeans.

The occupants sustained non-life threatening injuries from the alleged assaults.

To advance this ongoing criminal investigation, the RCMP is asking witnesses, or anyone with any information regarding this incident, to immediately come forward.

No piece of information is too small.

Witnesses are urged to call the Trail detachment non-emergency line at 250.364.2566.

Or remain completely anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.8477.
