Agassiz home invasion ‘targeted’: RCMP

Did you happen to hear a car with a loud muffler on Friday morning in Agassiz? If so, local RCMP may want to speak with you. Police are calling an Agassiz home invasion a ‘targeted’ attack, and they’re hoping witnesses can help identify the suspects. Three men allegedly forced their way into a home along Hot Springs Road, near Striker’s Corner, sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Friday.The suspects were wearing black hooded sweatshirts, with the hoods up, and bandanas covering the lower parts of the faces, police say. The occupants of the home were sleeping at the time of the break-in. Police responded at about 8:30 a.m., after the three suspects fled in a vehicle with a very loud muffler. “We are hoping that due to the time of day of this incident someone may have noticed this vehicle,” says Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. Both the home and the occupants are known to police, and any reason for the home invasion was not released. However, they did say that they believe the home was targeted. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). news@ahobserver.com
