Moose Jaw Police Service (MJPS) is investigating a suspicious home invasion.
“On the surface, it seems as though there’s more to it than a random knock on the door and demand (for) cash,” said Sgt. Cliff Froehlich with the MJPS.
“That just doesn’t happen. Someone just doesn’t come to your door at 1 a.m. and say ‘I want cash from you.’”
Police attended to a residence on the 500 block of Ninth Avenue Northwest for a report of a home invasion in which an adult male occupant was assaulted with a weapon and robbed of cash.
The homeowner received abrasions and lacerations. He was taken to Union Hospital, was treated for injuries — he required stitches on his lips — and later released.
Froehlich told the Times-Herald two persons knocked on the door of the home. The male and female suspects were both described as aboriginal.
The 5’8” male suspect had his face covered, but appeared to be about 25 years old. He was armed with a baseball bat.
The female suspect was taller, with an estimated weight of 200 lbs.
“We’re continuing to investigate to determine who the people were that entered the residence and the relationship between the suspects and homeowner,” Froehlich said.
