The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is looking for four young men who broke into a St. John's home early Wednesday, demanding cash from the couple living there.
Police said the men invaded a house on Colville Street after 2 a.m.
The four demanded cash, although police did not reveal what was stolen during the crime.
The residents were not injured, although there was some property damage to their home.
Police said the four suspects appeared to be in their 20s, although their faces were concealed during the crime.
The RNC called in a dog unit in an effort to find the suspects, and has enlisted its Criminal Investigation Division.
Help from public
Police are now looking for the public's help to identify the suspects involved in the violent break and enter.
Two of the male suspects are described as 5'7" tall with a medium build. One was wearing a black hoodie and a baseball cap, while the other had a white hoodie with a turquoise and blue pattern.
The third suspect is around 5'7", 170 pounds, with a blue hoodie, blue bandana, and black gloves.
The final man is 5'11" with a heavy build, and was wearing all black.
Following the incident, police say the suspects fled the area towards a path located at the end of the cul de sac.
