Coquitlam RCMP asks for your help to solve an alleged home invasion; one suspect South Asian

COQUITLAM RCMP are hoping that information from the public will help identify three suspects from an alleged Coquitlam home invasion last year.

On February 9, 2018, just before 8:30 p.m., police received a 911 call that three men had broken through the front door of a home in the 600-block of Poirier Street. A family of three was home at the time and two of them received minor injuries.

In order to further this investigation, Coquitlam RCMP is releasing composite sketches for two of the suspects.

Suspect 1

Suspect 1 is described as:

A South Asian man,

  • 20 to 30-years-old,
  • With a short, well-defined beard,
  • Brown, short dark hair with dark eyes,
  • Medium height and build,
  • Wearing a track suit with red and white features and a high-visibility vest.



Suspect 2

Suspect 2 is described as:

  • A white man who may be European,
  • 40 to 50 years old,
  • Light blue or green eyes with brown hair,
  • Slightly shorter than average, large, stocky and muscular,
  • Wearing a toque and a high-visibility orange jacket.




Suspect 3 (for whom there is no composite drawing) is described as:

  • A tall male of uncertain age,
  • Skinny or slim,
  • Dressed in all black from head to toe.

The victims are not known to police and there is no evidence to indicate that this crime is part of a wider conflict.
