More than two months after a disturbing daytime home invasion took place in Aldergrove, where a young woman was tied up, police are just now releasing information and a sketch of one of the suspects.

Shortly before noon on June 12, two suspects forced their way into a home in the Aldergrove area. The men suggested they were in the neighbourhood investigating a gas leak.  The lone female in the house was bound with duct tape and the suspects began searching through drawers in the home.

A short time later, they left the home and fled in a dark grey four-door compact SUV or crossover vehicle.  The men took two small jewelry boxes from the residence.

The victim was not injured in any way but obviously traumatized.

The victim was able to work with a police sketch artist and a composite drawing of one of the suspects has been created.

The suspects are described as East Indian, between 5’9” and 5’10” with short dark hair.  One of the two men was wearing a blue hoodie, grey sweatpants and grey Nike running shoes.

Police are asking anyone who can assist with this investigation in any way, to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2221-TIPS.
