Kamloops RCMP are looking to identify two suspects after a morning break-in left one person injured.

Around 6 a.m. today, April 26, police responded to a Sagebrush home in the 700 block of Munro Street, where two men triggered a residential alarm, according to an RCMP news release.

The two men, described as being in their 20s, broke into the home and forced the resident back inside when they tried to leave, causing some minor injuries.

According to police, the suspects demanded money from the resident, eventually leaving with a wallet and other items.

Police dogs attended the area and were able to locate the stolen wallet, but not the suspects.

"We're asking anyone who lives around the area and hasn't yet spoken to police to please have a look at their home surveillance to see if there is anything on it that might help with this investigation," RCMP spokesperson Const. Crystal Evelyn said in the release.

Both suspects are described as being in their 20s, and at least one of them is Caucasian. They were both wearing sunglasses, gloves and hooded sweaters at time. One of the sweaters was brown and the other is possibly black.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-13238.
