The 400 block of Shepherd Street West as seen in Google Earth

A man was tied up with an electrical cord and then assaulted, Thursday, but police say the act does not appear to have been random.

Police were called Thursday afternoon to a residence in the 400 block of Shepherd Street West after the man’s brother came to check up on him. The victim hadn’t showed up for work that day, according to police.

Police say the victim told them that around 2am, someone knocked at his front door. When he opened the door, two suspects came in, tied him up with an electrical cord and assaulted him with a statue. The suspects reportedly demanded money while one of the suspects held a kitchen knife.

The suspects ransacked the home and made off with a small amount of cash.

Police say the victim was transported to hospital by ambulance. He received non life threatening injuries including several lacerations and contusions to his face and head.

Two suspects are wanted by police.

The first is described as possibly a white male, 5’4″ in height, around 130lbs with small beady eyes. He was wearing a yellow bandana with red trim covering his face, a long sleeve shirt and held a black-handled kitchen knife.

The second is described as a white male, 5″10″, around 180-200lbs with short black hair and black bushy eyebrows.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Windsor Police Major Crime Branch at 519-255-6700 ext. 4830 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS).
