About an hour earlier two masked assailants entered a Langley home in the 20000-block of 46A Avenue where three people were home at the time and demanded money from the victim.

The victim was stabbed multiple times and is now in stable condition, according to police.

Officers believe the home invasion was targeted. It is unknown how the attackers gained entry into the home.

On Wednesday investigators executed a search warrant on the Langley home to gather evidence to assist with identifying the suspects.
