Man injured in Chilliwack home invasion

A 'significant amount' of jewellry and cash stolen in home invasion in East Chilliwack Monday morning.

A 45-year-old Chilliwack man is recovering from injuries he sustained after armed men burst into an East Chilliwack home and stole “a significant amount” of cash and jewellery.

Three people were at home when the robbery occurred at around 2:20 a.m. Monday morning, police say.

Two of the occupants of the residence, who were sleeping in the same room, woke up and were confronted by the masked men – one armed with a weapon.  A significant amount of jewellry and cash were stolen and the thieves fled.

The 45-year-old-male victim sustained non-life threatening injuries during the attack and was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital by ambulance.

The investigation is ongoing by the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit.  Police believe this house may have been targeted, however, there is no indication the suspects and victims are known to each other.  At this point, the investigation has also revealed that neither the occupants of the home, nor the address are associated to any drug related activity.

The Lower Mainland District Police Dog Services and the Lower Mainland District Forensic Services have assisted in this ongoing investigation.

“A home invasion robbery is a very frightening and traumatic experience,” said Corporal Tammy Hollingsworth.  “Investigators are trying to determine why suspects targeted this occupied home and hope to locate the men responsible for this attack.”

Police are asking anyone with information about this serious criminal offence to call the investigator, Constable Julie Bauer at 604-702-4229 of the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit, the Chilliwack RCMP detachment at 604-792-4611, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
