Windsor Police are searching for several individuals after a suspected home invasion on Thursday night.

It happened in the 700-block of Langlois Ave. just before 9 p.m.

Four people were in an apartment watching television in different rooms.

They told police that four or five men broke through the door and one of the suspects hit a 23-year-old man in the face with a handgun causing minor scrapes. The other suspects demanded money from the other three people in the apartment.

They also allegedly took a cell phone and laptop computer and a number of potted marijuana plants. Officers investigating the robbery located electronic equipment consistent with a marijuana grow operation inside the apartment.

The suspects exited the apartment and were last seen running eastbound on Cataraqui St.

The description of the suspect in possession of the handgun is a black male, 5'9", with short hair and corn rows.  He was wearing a black toque and a green plaid-patterned jacket.

The remaining four suspects are described as black males ranging from 16 to 25 years in age.  They were all dressed in black clothing and were wearing puffy jackets and hoodies.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to call Windsor Police Investigations at 519-255-6700 ext. 4830 or Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS.
