A home invasion in Vancouver’s wealthy Shaughnessy neighbourhood has Vancouver Police concerned.
According to the VPD spokesperson Randy Fincham, three men allegedly forced their way into an occupied basement suite in the 1900 block of West 37th Avenue just after 6:30 p.m. on Sunday evening. One man was inside the suite at the time and was allegedly assaulted by the intruders before they stole an undisclosed number of items and left in a vehicle.
The man had only minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene.
A motive for the break-in has not yet been determined but police say it does appear to be targeted.
