Nanaimo RCMP is looking for information about a vehicle believed to be connected to a violent home invasion in Nanaimo last month.

A man dressed in camouflage entered a North Nanaimo home around 3 p.m. on March 14 and assaulted two teenage girls with bear spray, before stealing various items and fleeing, according to an RCMP media release.

In the weeks since the incident, police were able to identify a dark purple or brown 2000 Acura 1.6 EL sedan, with a missing front passenger side turn signal. The vehicle was captured on a home security system leaving the area at the time of the crime, according to RCMP.

“This was a very disturbing crime where two defenceless innocent teenagers were victimized,” said Const. Simon Gallimore.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or the home invasion can call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file #2022-8688.
