Home invasion in Guildford

Dog killed and women bear-sprayed in Sunday night robbery

A dog was killed and two women were tied up and bear-sprayed during a home invasion robbery Sunday night in Guildford.

Around 9 p.m., two males wearing masks forced their way into a residence at 101 Avenue and 156 Street through a basement door and proceeded to rob the occupants of the residence, who are not known to police.

“We’re still trying to establish exactly what the motive was,” said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “We know enough at this point, without saying too much, that the residence was specifically targeted and definitely not a random robbery.”

While it is still unknown what specific items were taken, police did confirm that a safe was stolen.

The suspects were in and out in a matter of minutes, killing the dog and leaving one woman with a small head injury.

The investigation continues.
