Richmond RCMP are hoping the release of surveillance video clips will help them solve an attempted home invasion from earlier this month.
It happened just after 11:30pm on October 6, 2015 in the 4000 block of Blair Drive.
Police believe four suspects wanted to enter the home by force.
Corporal Dennis Hwang says two of them approached the front door, while two others waited around the corner.
One was armed with what appeared to be a shot gun, another with what looked like an assault rifle.
“The home owner in this incident was very concious of what was about to happen, slammed the door quickly, and called police.”
Hwang says the home owner’s actions may have prevented some serious harm.
Police are hoping to identify one of the suspects.
He’s described as Caucasian, with dark brown straight hair, in his late teens or early twenties, with a medium build, possibly 5’10” or taller.
