Abbotsford Police investigate attempted home invasion

Police are investigating an attempted home invasion that occurred Tuesday night on Flagman Place in west Abbotsford.

Abbotsford Police were called to the scene at about 8:15 p.m. When officers arrived, they learned that four suspects had attempted to gain entry into the home.

Sgt. Casey Vinet said one of the suspects was armed with a gun and another carried a blunt instrument.

A resident of the home confronted the men at the front door and, after a brief physical confrontation, the suspects ran to a nearby vehicle and drove away.

The victim was not injured.

Vinet said the suspects were all wearing dark clothing and had their faces covered. The get-away vehicle is described as a white domestic mid-sized car produced sometime in the 2000s.

Vinet said police are continuing to investigate, and a motive for the attack has not been established.

Flagman Place is located just east of the Abbotsford-Aldergrove border, south of Fraser Highway.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
