Kids and babies tied up in violent Newton home invasion

Children were tied up and a father was beaten during a violent home invasion in Newton this week.

On Wednesday at 5:20 p.m., two men broke through the door of a home in the 7500-block of 123A Street and tied up the family in the back of the home.

They then began making demands for items in the home.

Several children were tied up, including two Grade 2 twins and two infants, as were a caregiver and another woman.

However, the home invasion was interrupted when the father got home. He was assaulted and later taken to hospital with a swollen jaw.

RCMP believe the suspects, described as South Asian men wearing hoodies, took off in what appeared to be a black Honda Civic.

Mounties have not speculated about what motivated the incident or whether anything was taken from the home.

They do believe it was a targeted home invasion and not a random occurrence.

Anyone with further information or who may have witnessed anything suspicious in the neighbourhood is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
