Suspects sought in home invasion on Stewart Street


The Ottawa Police Service Robbery Unit continues to investigate a December home invasion and is seeking the public’s assistance to identify the suspects responsible.

On December 19, 2017, the occupant of an apartment, situated along the 1-100 block of Stewart Street, answered a knock to the door. At that time, three suspects pushed their way into the apartment and a demand was made for the victim’s cellular phone. An undisclosed quantity of cash was also provided to the suspects by a second occupant of the apartment. The suspects fled with the phone and cash, and also a debit card. There were no injuries. The stolen debit card was used a short time later at a nearby fast food restaurant.

The suspects are described as follows:

#1: black male, early 20’s, wearing black jacket with a grey hooded jacket underneath.

#2: black male, thin build, early 20’s, wearing a jacket with red & white lettering & stripes on sleeves, with a grey hooded jacket underneath, black pants.

#3: Middle-Eastern male, 6’0″ (183cm), 20 years old, wearing a winter vest over a black coat.

Investigators are releasing images since obtained of the three suspects.
