Colwood’s Lagoon area hit with home invasion

Two Colwood residents were terrorized last night in what police suspect was a targeted home invasion at the wrong home.

Two Colwood residents were terrorized last night in what police suspect was a targeted home invasion at the wrong apartment.

West Shore RCMP say two men forced their way into a Lagoon-area home at 1 a.m., threatened a 33-year-old male and 26-year-old female, and prevented them from leaving the residence.

The male victim was assaulted before the men fled with cash, wallets and keys.

RCMP Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said information gleaned from the investigation suggests the men were targeting specific individuals, but entered the wrong home.

“As you could imagine for anyone who experiences this, it is quite traumatic,” Rochlitz said. “They were quite shook up.”

The victims aren’t known to police and police aren’t releasing the specific location of the home. Rochlitz couldn’t say if known criminals are living in the neighbourhood.

A person living at Aquattro told the Gazette that police and police dog units searched one of the Aquattro condominum buildings and surrounding area last night for several hours.

Male suspect No. 1 is described as white, 25 to 30 years old, five foot seven to five foot nine, medium build, all black clothing and black high ankle footwear.

Male suspect No. 2 is white, 25 to 30 years old, slim face, sandy blonde hair, blue eyes, black clothing and black high ankle footwear.

Anyone with information can call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
