Man broke into home, frightened woman in bed, police say

Abbotsford Police looking for suspect

Abbotsford Police are looking for a man that broke into a woman’s home and gave her a scare.

She woke up to find the man standing over her, screamed and the man then ran away, according to police.

In a statement, Sgt. Judy Bird said the incident happened late on April 5 but police have been unable to locate a suspect since. She said the woman was unable to provide a description of the man, as it was dark at the time.

She said there were no signs of a physical break-in and it’s not clear how he got into the apartment in the 30550-block of Cardinal Avenue.

Cops searched the area at the time and have since reviewed CCTV footage and talked to neighbours but have yet to identify a suspect, Bird said. She said police are not disclosing whether anything was taken.

She said that this is a good time to remind the public to secure doors and windows, especially as the weather warms up.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police at (604) 859-5225 or text 222973.
