Stoney Creek woman injured in 'targeted' home invasion

Police are looking for three male suspects after an armed home invasion in Stoney Creek.

Victim robbed of necklaces, struck with a handgun, police say

A Stoney Creek woman was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after what police are calling a targeted home invasion.

Around 11 a.m. on Tuesday, three armed men entered a house on Gray Road and confronted a 48-year-old female resident, who was home alone at the time, police said in a Wednesday news release.

After the intruders demanded money, the victim said she had no money on hand. The men then tore two necklaces from the woman's neck. One suspect struck her head with the butt of a handgun, causing her to lose consciousness, police say..

“The suspects rummaged through the home but left only with the necklaces,” police said in the statement.

The suspects fled the home and police were called. The victim was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
