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.
