A couple in BC recently became victims of a terrifying home invasion. Police in BC are now searching for the four suspects responsible for ransacking a home and firing a single shot in a city-central neighbourhood during a late night home invasion. Police are now searching for eye witness accounts and dashcam footage to aid in the investigation.
According to the Abbotsford Police Department, a suspect forced their way into a home on Saturday evening. At around 4:30 PM the Abbotsford police were called to respond to a home invasion call. This terrifying incident took place in the area of Maclure Road and Horn Street.
During the invasion, a 54-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman were in the home. According to a released document, the residents were at home when they were confronted by four men wearing hoodies.
All four suspects allegedly forced their way into the home by producing a firearm. During the invasion, they demanded drugs and money.
The male resident was able to leave through the back door while the female resident took cover in another room. Suspects then began to ransack the house looking for their demanded items.
Police have indicated that they were able to flee with a duffle bag filled with unknown items. They also took the keys to a black BMW that was parked in the driveway.
According to police, the male resident attempted to confront the suspects as they were leaving in his car. At the time, a single gunshot was fired from inside the vehicle, breaking the driver’s side window.
The four hooded suspects were able to leave in the stolen BMW, with a white sedan following shortly behind. Police later found the stolen BMW abandoned a short distance away from the home invasion location.
During the incident, neither of the residents were reported injured. At this time, Abbotsford police are searching for any eyewitnesses and dash cam footage to aid in the investigation.
While no update has been provided by Abbotsford police, they have stated that it is believed to be a targeted attack.
