Windsor police are looking for two suspects after a robbery in the 1000 block of California Avenue Monday night.

Police say that a man returned to his home shortly after 10pm, when he noticed that his front bedroom curtain was drawn down. Because he found this to be suspicious, the man  looked into his home from the front door window. He found two suspects at the rear of the residence in the laundry room.

He then ran to the rear of the residence and confronted the suspects as they left out the back door. One of the suspects produced a silver handgun and the second suspect was holding a knife. The suspects ordered the him into the residence and were demanding valuables as they brought him from room to room.

The man was struck in the head several times. The suspects took the mans cell phone and wallet from his pocket as well as a small amount of cash from his bedroom, and then tied him up with an extension cord and fled the residence.

The man eventually untied himself and went to a neighbour’s home for help.

He was transported to hospital and received staples and stitches to close cuts to his forehead and head. His injuries are considered to be non life threatening.

The first suspect is described as a male white, 25 years of age, 6′ tall with a stocky build. He is described as having bushy eyebrows and a round face. He had dark hair and was wearing a dark baseball cap and was in possession of a silver handgun.

The second is described as a male white, 25 years of age, 6’2″, skinny build, medium length hair, wearing a light grey hoodie. He was in possession of a small knife.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call police at 519-255-6700 ex 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477)
