Strathroy-Caradoc Police have issued a suspect description after a brazen home invasion robbery Thursday night.
Police were called to a home on Thomas Street in Strathroy just after 10 p.m. Thursday. The investigation revealed an elderly couple had answered the door to a male who then forced his way into the house, brandishing a weapon.
The suspect allegedly pushed the woman down and demanded money, fleeing after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was injured in the incident.
A London Police Service K9 unit was called in to track the suspect but was unsuccessful.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s about 5’10”-5’11” with a thin build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded sweatshirt and may have been wearing a hat.
