A shocking and terrifying attempted home invasion occurred in in Campbell River on Wednesday, Oct. 18th.
Video of it has been obtained by Global News.
“(At first) it was loud bangs .. really loud. I didn’t understand what was going on. I thought something may be wrong with my brother and his dog,” said Janet Mitchell, who lives in the home.
The brother and sister quickly realized the loud noises were coming from an outside door.
“I went to my bedroom window and I could see three people leaving my driveway,” she said.
“I yelled at them to get out of my yard and one of them turned around and he had something in his hand and said something like, ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Then I called the police.”
In the video, three suspects, two men and a woman, are seen at a side door. The two men are seen aggressively kicking the door, trying to gain access to the home.
It also appears one of the men is holding a long gun.
Mitchell said she didn’t realize one of the suspects had a weapon until she was showing the footage to a police officer.
She posted the CCTV video on Facebook in hope that someone from the community would recognize the suspects. Mitchell said she has no idea why her home was targeted.
