LANGLEY – A Surrey man is among four suspects charged in a home invasion at a Langley apartment where the victim was held at knifepoint.
Dustyn Wald, 22, of Surrey, Andreas Bronk, 24, of Chilliwack, and Langley residents Georgia Krenus, 18, and Mauricio Avila, 22, have been charged with break and enter and assault with a weapon related to the Sept. 8 incident.
Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks said the victim answered a knock at the door and opened it to a young woman.
"Once the door was opened, three males forced themselves into the apartment," Marks said. "The victim was ordered to be quiet and instructed to sit in a chair."
She said he was struck several times, "leaving a mark and swelling on his face."
Marks said the victim was held at knifepoint while his apartment was rummaged through and a Blackberry Playbook, two laptop computers, the victim’s wallet, several wristwatches and two Masonic rings were stolen.
Wald, Bronk and Krenus are to appear in Surrey provincial court on Wednesday.
"Krenus has been released on bail while Bronk and Wald remain in custody," Marks noted.
Avila is also still in custody and is expected to appear in court on Oct. 30.
