Reward offered for tips on home invasion

Greater Sudbury Police Chief Paul Pedersen makes a point at the launch of Crime Stoppers Month at Greater Sudbury Police headquarters on Jan. 7. Since the inception of Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers in 1987, tipsters have assisted in solving more than 4,000 cases and helped in the recovery of more than $47.4 million in cash, property and drugs, making the “program one of the most effective Crime Stoppers programs in Canada,” according to a release by Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers.

A minimum reward of $1,000 is being offered for information that would help police identify the suspects involved in a recent home invasion.

At around 11:30 p.m. on Monday, “two men entered a residence on Bloor Street in Sudbury, violently assaulted the two residents inside and robbed them,” according to Greater Sudbury Police.

“The two victims were taken to hospital where they were treated for extensive injuries and subsequently released.”

The male suspects are believed to be in their mid-20s and were wearing dark clothing at the time of the assault and robbery. 

Crime Stoppers and the Greater Sudbury Police Service are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the parties involved in the crime.

“Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers is convinced someone has information on the identity of these culprits,” a release states.

A guaranteed minimum $1,000 reward is being offered for tips received before midnight on Jan. 29 if the information leads to the identity of the culprits. If several successful tips are fielded, the reward money will be divided among tipsters. 

For tips received after the deadline, the standard process for determining reward amounts will apply.

If you have information on the identity and/or location of the culprits, you are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 705-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or submit an online tip at
