Home invaders assault man and take guns

RCMP believe a Chilliwack home was specifically targeted by three men, who broke in and stole firearms early Tuesday morning.

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for three men who invaded a home shortly after midnight Tuesday morning.

The three men forced their way into a house in the 7000 block of Marble Hill Road, assaulting the one person who was home at the time. That person was hurt, but got away with minor injuries.

RCMP believe the suspects made off with a small number of firearms, and were gone by the time officers arrived. The Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service tried to track them down, unsuccessfully.

“We are still investigating this incident,” said Cst. Ashley St. Germaine. “It is believed at this time that this was a targeted event.”

The Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Section is helping with the investigation.

Anyone with info is asked to phone 604-792-4611 and provide file number 2014-41444, or call Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
