A few more details are coming out about a home invasion robbery when four armed men forced their way into a home in the city’s north end on Tuesday night.

A man, 28, and his wife, 25 were home at the time when four men pushed their way into the home armed with rifles and demanded money. They made the two victims lie on the floor while they took money, phones and personal items before taking off.

Elizabeth Popowich with Regina police says they do not believe it was a random act. Investigating officers think there is more information about what happened that night which they have not been told.

No one was hurt in the incident which happened in the 1000 block of 12th Avenue North, on the edge of the Uplands area.

On Wednesday afternoon, it was quiet. Traffic moves through the large street at a fairly rapid clip even in the mid-afternoon and you can hear a steady din from an industrial project in a field to the east.

There's no outward sign of which house it happened in and although cars were parked in the driveways no one answered the door. There are no boarded up doors or windows, no police tape -- no sign that anything is amiss.

They have a released description of two of the suspects - one was describecd as about 6 feet tall and heavy-set, wearing jeans and a black coat. Another man was small - around five feet tall and weighing about 130 lbs.

Police are still investigating and anyone with more information is asked to call police at 777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
