No one was injured in a home invasion in Pitt Meadows on Monday evening, but the three suspects managed to escape.
Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a home invasion that took place in the 19400 block of Hoffmann Way just after 8 p.m. on Monday, when three men entered a home, claiming to be plainclothes police officers.
They assaulted one of the occupants, while the other victim managed to flee the residence and alert a neighbour.
The suspects ran out of the house, and drove off in a white van.
As they were driving off, the passenger's side door mirror was broken off.
"The victims in this incident are extremely shaken by the ordeal," said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. "They report seeing a gun and a knife, but neither was used during the incident. Although the motive for this event is not clear, generally speaking these types of incidents are not random attacks, and are targeted."
One of the suspects is described as being a white male, aged 30 to 35 years. His accomplices were wearing disguises.
Witnesses and the victims can only describe the van as being white in colour, and that it is missing the passenger door's exterior mirror.
