Victoria police seek clues in home invasion

Victoria police are looking for more information after a violent home invasion last Saturday.

Four masked men kicked in a door to a townhouse in the 300-block of Robert Street just before 4 a.m., waking the couple who lived there.

They pepper sprayed the man after he confronted them, and fled the house after the woman alerted neighbours. The couple and their four-year-old son were later treated for the effects of pepper spray.

Witnesses said the four men fled the scene in a black or dark green SUV, similar to a Jeep Cherokee, with “flashy” wheels and loud engine exhaust.

Nothing was taken in the home invasion and it’s unclear why the family was targeted.

Detective Const. Kris Rice said it is possible the men simply got the wrong house.
