Victoria BC -  Officers from multiple divisions are in the early stages of an investigation into a home invasion that occurred this morning.

Patrol officers were called to Topaz Avenue at 8:50 a.m. for a reported home invasion.  The two residents suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Shortly after 10:20 a.m. officers were called to the 2900-block of Washington Avenue for the report of a car fire.  At this time, it is too early to say if this is related to the home invasion on Topaz Avenue.  

Investigators from our Major Crime Detective Division and Forensic Identification Unit are in the beginning stages of the investigation and there are numerous questions that we will not be able to answer at this time.  It is too early to say if there is any risk to the public.

Investigators are asking for witnesses who may have seen a blue Volkswagen Jetta driving erratically on Finlayson Avenue or in the area of Blanshard and Finlayson streets between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. If you saw this Jetta or have any information on the home invasion,  please call our non-emergency line at (250) 995-7654.
