RCMP are looking for leads in a bizarre and brazen home invasion Thursday morning.

Five people stormed a house in the 52000 block of Yale Road East, slightly west of the roundabout located at Highway 9 and Yale Road.

The only occupant in the residence was able to escape and get help from a neighbour; she was not injured during the altercation with the suspects.

“The occupants are not known to the police and we are trying to determine the motivation behind this home invasion,” said Const. Ashley St. Germaine.

Police are asking for the public’s help.

“If anyone saw anything out of the ordinary, we want to hear from you,”  St. Germaine said. “What could seem to be an insignificant detail could prove to be very important in this investigation.”  It is believed that the suspects were in a smaller vehicle between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., later fleeing from the scene.  Agassiz RCMP Serious Crimes Unit continues to investigate this incident with the assistance of the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services and Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Section.

Further information will be released when available.  Anyone with any information that would assist the RCMP in this investigation, is “strongly urged” to contact Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211. Information can also be provided anonymously. Contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
