Windsor Police have issued an arrest warrant for one suspect and are requesting the assistance of the public in identifying a second suspect involved in a home invasion robbery earlier this week.
At 1:00 a.m.on Tuesday April 26, 2011, a 23-year-old man was sleeping in his apartment located in a multi-dwelling building located in the 900 block of Pierre St. when he was awoken by someone knocking on his bedroom window. The victim went to the rear door of his apartment and when he opened it, two men pushed their way into the apartment and began assaulting the victim. The suspects demanded that the victim give them pills and cash. During the struggle, one of the suspects grabbed a knife from the victim’s night table and attempted to stab the victim unsuccessfully. The victim received minor abrasions as a result of the assault.
The suspects fled the rear door of the apartment with a quantity of prescription oxycontin, some cash and the victim’s cell phone. The victim followed the suspects as they fled north in the rear alley and watched as the suspects got into a cab on Erie St. near Elsmere St.
Windsor Police have identified and issued an arrest warrant for one suspect involved in the robbery and are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the second suspect. Investigators obtained surveillance photos depicting the second suspect seated in the rear of the cab. The second suspect has a very large, noticeable black tattoo located on the back of his left hand which can clearly be seen in one of the photos.
Anyone with any information as to the identity of the second suspect is asked to call Windsor police investigations at 519-255-6700 ext 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS(8477).
