Burnaby RCMP are seeking three men connected to a home invasion robbery Friday afternoon.

Around 2:50 p.m. on June 22, three men forced their way into a home in the 6100-block of Denbigh Avenue in South Burnaby. They assaulted an elderly man and robbed two other occupants of their cellphones before fleeing, say Burnaby RCMP.

All three suspects are described as Caucasian men in their 30s who were all wearing black clothing. Two were wearing black ski masks and were both taller than the third suspect. The tallest suspect was described as slim and about 180 cm (five-foot-11) tall.

The two taller men were also reported to be carrying weapons—one had a metal object about five inches long which may have been a hammer, while the other  carried a knife.

The shortest of the three was wearing a baseball cap with gold on it. He is described as about 170 cm (five-foot-seven) and had brown curly hair.

The three suspects fled in a white Nissan with a British Columbia licence plate that began with "22."

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
