Hermes bags stolen in Richmond home invasion 0
Police are searching for four men who tied up, robbed and beat a 50-year-old Richmond woman during a home invasion.
Surveillance photos were released of the suspects on Thursday, though the incident happened on June 26 around 3 p.m. at a home in the 7000 block of Petts Road.
RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said the woman, who was able to break free from the restraints after the robbery, suffered injuries to her face.
She told police that around 1:30 that afternoon, two men knocked on her door saying they wanted to talk to her about an insurance claim involving the vehicle in her driveway. After a few minutes, the woman invited the men into her home, where they overpowered her, bound her and assaulted her.
Two more men followed and helped steal numerous suitcases and bags containing the victim's property - including seven Hermes purses worth between $5,000 and $15,000 each.
The suspects are believed to be linked to a silver or charcoal colored full size SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer, with a hatchback and stock rims. A licence plate is unfortunately not available.
