Man and woman assauled in Fairview home in early morning hours of Dec. 14

Red Deer RCMP are going to the public again for help in identifying suspects in a December home invasion.

One suspect described as having blue eyes and blonde or dirty blonde facial hair.

Another suspect wore a yellow plastic raincoat.

One suspect wore a puffy blue or grey winter jacket and jeans.
