Hamilton police are seeking three male suspects in a July home invasion and robbery on the Mountain.
A 17-year-old male was walking to his brother's apartment building on Mountain Park Avenue near Summit Avenue. He was approached by another male who started a conversation with him and knew his brother's name.
The suspect followed the victim into the apartment building. Police said the victim was scared and tried to run away from the suspect in the stairwell, but was not successful.
The victim then went into his brother's unit and the suspect, along with two more males who appeared in a stairwell. The victim was "violently assaulted," said Police, by the three men.
The suspects took some items from the home and left.
Police said this was not a random attack and that the victim was the target.
Hamilton Police are asking the public with information to contact Detective John Tselepakis, Division Three Detectives at 905-546-4947 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
