Around 1 pm on July 14, 2019, police received a report from a man who said he was involved in a collision and bear spayed at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Madison Avenue in Burnaby.

While stopped at the intersection, the man says his vehicle was struck by what is believed to be a gold Lincoln Navigator with a “distinctive black bumper.”

When the man pulled his vehicle to the side of the highway, the suspects stopped beside him and sprayed bear spray at him.

The man then drove one block and was followed by the suspects who allegedly rammed his vehicle repeatedly.

The suspect vehicle is quite unique in appearance so we’re hopeful that someone will have information about this vehicle that will help further our investigation says Cpl. Mike Kalanj, with the Burnaby RCMP, in a statement.

Both suspects are described as:

  • Caucasian men
  • Aged in their 20s
  • Wearing dark clothing

The suspects’ vehicle is described as:

  • A newer model Lincoln Navigator
  • Gold or beige in colour
  • With a distinct black bumper
  • Will likely have damage to the front driver’s side area

Burnaby RCMP is asking anyone who witnessed this collision or may have any dashcam video of the collision to contact police at 604-646-9999.
