RCMP investigating home invasion
On Thursday February 16, 2017 the Nanaimo RCMP received a report of a home invasion which had occurred at an apartment in central Nanaimo.
Investigators were told that three male suspects in a pickup truck approached a resident outside the apartment building. The suspects threatened the resident with hand guns and demanded they be let into the building. Once inside, the suspects entered an apartment unit where they assaulted the three adult male residents and tied them up. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash, cell phones, and other property. The victims were left traumatized by the ordeal but did not require medical attention.
The suspects were associated to a blue, approximately 2007, Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The victims were able to describe two of the suspects to a police sketch artist (attached).
