Abbotsford Police investigate attempted home invasion

Four men, two of them carrying weapons, tried to force their way into a home near the Abbotsford-Aldergrove border.

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.
