Police are looking for two suspects after a home invasion in Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve early Tuesday evening that saw three people tied up, including an elderly woman, and a large amount of money stolen.

The incident happened in the early evening on Du Quesne Street between Alfred-Pellan Street and Sherbrooke Street East.

They were tied up and suffered nervous shock, but they were not sent to hospital.
