ON January 27 at 3:28 a.m., Abbotsford Police patrol officers were flagged down by a woman who advised that she was the victim of a home invasion. Officers responded to a residence in the 2600-block of Adelaide Street to find that four adult occupants had been confronted in the home by multiple masked men.
The suspects forced their way into the basement suite and tied up one female. The suspects then proceeded upstairs, bear-sprayed the other occupants and demanded money. A physical altercation ensued between the suspects and one male resident. The resident was subsequently taken to hospital by BC Ambulance Service to receive medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries, including a broken wrist.
Nothing appears to have been stolen in what investigators believe to be a targeted incident.
Abbotsford Police Major Crime Unit detectives continue to investigate and ask that anyone with information about this incident should call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.
