Jun 10 2016, 11:26 pm

A suspect responsible for a crime spree in Surrey this morning – involving assault, carjackings, and vehicle collisions – is still at large.

According to Surrey RCMP, the incident began at approximately 10:35 am in the 14000 block of 88th Avenue after an office pulled over a suspicious vehicle during a traffic stop. However, the suspect fled from police and struck a vehicle with passengers nearby.

After the collision, the suspect abandoned the vehicle, physically assaulted the driver of the occupied car, and fled in the victim’s vehicle on 88th Avenue in the westbound direction. Traveling along 88th Avenue, the suspect collided with another occupied vehicle.

No injuries occurred as a result from either collision, and the driver who was assaulted did not require any medical attention.

The stolen vehicle was later found unoccupied in the 11400 block of 13th Street, but the suspect was not located in the area even after a thorough search was performed.

Police have described the suspect as a South Asian male between the ages of 25 and 30. At the time of the incident, he was wearing black clothing and may have had a black and white pit bull dog with him.

“The investigation into this matter is in the early stages, and no further information is available at this time,” reads a release by police.

Anyone who may have information that could assist investigators is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-502 or Crime Stoppers’ anonymous hotline at 1-800-222-8477.
