The Surrey RCMP are looking for a pickup truck after one of the passengers may have been forcibly confined and assaulted.
Just after 1 p.m. on Thursday, a passenger in the back seat of a pickup truck was screaming for help at 123rd Street and 84th Avenue in Newton. The truck stopped and the passenger in the front seat got out and assaulted the person calling for help, and then got back in the vehicle. The truck left eastbound on 84th Avenue.
Surveillance cameras nearby caught pictures of the truck and the passengers.
The truck is a red four-door Ford F-150 pickup with low profile tires, chrome wheels and running boards, with a black cover over the box. It was last seen heading east on 80th Avenue towards King George Boulevard before turning south onto King George Boulevard.
Police describe the front passenger as male, South Asian, heavy set and six feet tall. He was wearing a blue dress shirt and black dress pants. There was no description of the driver or the possible victim.
Corporal Scotty Schulman says if you say this distinctive looking truck to let the RCMP know its whereabouts.
“The safety of the truck’s occupants are our primary concern at this point and we will be working hard to find them and the truck to determine what’s occurred,” he says in a statement.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
