Witnesses sought following interrupted break-and-enter in South Surrey

Police say "nobody was held, nobody was injured, nobody was harmed" in early-morning break-in

Police are looking for “two white males” after a South Surrey homeowner woke early Thursday to find two strangers in her home.

While one area resident described the incident in the 17100-block of 26A Avenue as a “home invasion,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Alanna Dunlop said it was “an interrupted break-and-enter.”

“There was some interaction between her and the two people,” Dunlop said of the homeowner. “Nobody was held, nobody was injured, nobody was harmed.”

Dunlop said while police were advised of the incident around 6:45 a.m., it occurred around 4 a.m.

Dunlop said police have only a limited description of the suspects, who may have been wearing masks.

“They might have been covered to some point, we’re still trying to sort that out,” Dunlop told Peace Arch News.

Some items were taken from the home.

Dunlop didn’t know the reason for the delay in reporting the incident, but emphasized the importance of advising police of any criminal activity in a timely manner.

“Obviously, it assists us when we get the information as quickly as possible,” she said. “If you don’t feel safe, go to another location and get some assistance and call… as soon as possible.”

While police have canvassed the neighbourhood, investigators continue to appeal for anyone who may have information they haven’t yet shared with officers to call the detachment at 604-599-7776.

“Anything (from) around that time,” Dunlop said. “Any little bit of information might be important.”
