A violent home invasion took place in the West End this morning that has left one woman with serious injuries.
Around 6:30 a.m. today (June 14), police were called to an apartment on Beach Avenue near Jervis Street.
A 29-year-old woman was reported to have been attacked by a man who appears to have entered through an unlocked patio door.
The woman suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital.
Investigators believe it was a break-and-enter attempt as a number of items were stolen.
Vancouver police are searching for a white male in his 30s who is about 183 centimetres (six-feet) tall with short dark hair and stubble.
He was last seen wearing a red t-shirt and blue jeans, and walked away from the crime scene.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-8477.
