Hamilton Police search for two suspects in recent Millgrove home invasion

Police are investigating a home invasion in the Millgrove area of Hamilton in which the victim received minor injuries.

In a news release issued Thursday (Dec. 24), police say the incident in question occurred on Saturday, December 19, 2020, shortly after 8:00 p.m., when they responded to a report of a home invasion at a residence in the area of 5th Concession Road West and Millgrove Side Road.

Officers met the victim and witnesses at a nearby property where they obtained the details surrounding the event. The residence was checked and police confirmed the parties had left and nothing appeared to have been taken.

Through continued investigation, police learned the victim was inside his residence with friends when two masked men entered his home from a rear door. Demands were made for specific items in the home while one man held a handgun. The suspects then assaulted the victim as his friends fled the residence. A short time later, the homeowner vacated the residence to a place of safety, leaving the suspects inside.

The victim received minor injuries as a result of the incident and was medically cleared at the scene.

The investigation remains ongoing by detectives from the Mountain Division Criminal Investigation Branch.

From the information gathered, detectives believe this was a targeted incident.
