Abbotsford police seeking witnesses to home invasion
Four men in hoodies forced their way into residence, stole car and fired gun
Abbotsford police are looking for anyone with information about four men they say forced their way into a home in the city's central neighbourhood and fled in a stolen car after robbing the residents at gunpoint.
According to a statement from police, the suspects, all wearing hoodies, entered the home in the area of Maclure Road and Horn Street Saturday at 4:30 p.m. They confronted a male and female resident, both aged 54, with a firearm and demanded money and drugs.
Police say the suspects ransacked the house and left the home with a duffel bag containing unknown items, including the keys to a black BMW parked in the driveway.
The male resident confronted the suspects in the driveway, say police, and a shot was then fired from inside the vehicle, breaking the driver's side window.
The suspects fled in the stolen car and a white sedan was seen following behind. Police say the stolen BMW was found abandoned a short distance away.
The residents weren't injured, but police believe this was a targeted incident.
Police are now seeking witnesses, CCTV and dashcam footage to help identify the suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225, text the department at 22973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
