Woman robbed in home invasion in Whalley

SURREY — A 36-year-old Surrey woman was robbed in her home in broad daylight on Monday after six or seven people wearing masks barged in through her front door.

The “home invasion” happened at about 12:15 p.m., in the 12600-block of 91st Avenue.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the robbers barged in when the victim answered their knock at the door. Two of them watched over her while the others ransacked her home, stole cash and took her cell phone.

“They got quite a bit of cash,” Schumann said. Police don’t know if the robbery was targeted or random.

The robbers ran out the back door when the downstairs tenant came home. A police dog was brought in but lost the track almost immediately. “There was probably a car waiting to take them away,” Schumann said.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
