An Abbotsford family is recovering after a stranger covered in blood broke into their home.
“Family is shaken, they’re definitely traumatized, they have a small child so not how they wanted to spend their Sunday morning,” says Abbotsford Police Staff Sergeant Rick Stewart.
He says police were called to the home on Langdon Street just after 8 a.m.
The family was in the living room when the man broke in through the bedroom window.
“When we arrived we ended up locating the suspect in the bathroom covered in blood. Indications are that this is a situation that is drug-induced.”
Stewart says the family is getting help through victim services.
He says the man had no connection to them nor the apartment building.
The suspect was taken to hospital with severe lacerations from the broken glass.
