One local teen is still recovering in hospital from wounds sustained during an attack from two people he knew in the early morning hours of Monday, May 23.
A 19-year-old man and a young offender allegedly beat the teenager with weapons during some kind of disagreement, Ridge Meadows RCMP are reporting.
Mounties were called to a residential complex on Ford Road in Pitt Meadows just before 1:30 a.m., where they discovered the beaten victim, but no sign of the suspects.
The young man was then taken to hospital by members of the B.C. Ambulance Service.
The two suspects were found and arrested later that same morning.
Police are now pursuing aggravated assault charges against both suspected youth, who are set to appear in court on May 30.
The investigation continues, and on Monday night the suspects were released with strict conditions.
Police are asking for witnesses to the altercation, who have not yet been interviewed by police, to contact the Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.
Man breaks police window
A 38-year-old man could face charges of mischief after he allegedly broke the glass to the front door of the police detachment Friday night.
At about 11:20 p.m. on May 20, police officers were inside the building in Maple Ridge, when the man – who police said was exhibiting signs of mental health issues – kicked the glass door. The glass shattered.
Ridge Meadows RCMP quickly took the man into custody, and he was released by a justice of the peace after he had calmed down. He’s set to appear in court in June.
Police search for suspicious man
An older man aroused suspicion in a family taking a walk along a trail near Harris Road and Fraser Dyke Road in Pitt Meadows on Monday morning.
At about 11:30 a.m., the man approached one of the family’s sons, and told him it was alright to speak with strangers.
Ridge Meadows RCMP said the man did not touch the young boy, or attempt to lure him away, and just continued to walk in the opposite direction to the family.
Police want help identifying the man, who is described as Caucasian, in his 60s, about 6 ft 1 in tall, with a slim build.
He has short white hair, with a grey goatee, and was wearing a black baseball hat, a white shirt with a BMW logo, a black poncho, and a black fanny bag.
Man breaks release conditions
A 43-year-old man was acting suspiciously in Kanaka Creek Regional Park on Friday morning, prompting a concerned citizen to call police.
The citizen thought the man may be in possession of stolen property.
When Ridge Meadows RCMP arrived at about 9 a.m. on May 20, they found the man with some tools in his possession, and without a copy of his court order, both of which are violations of his bail order.
The man was arrested for breaking conditions of his court ordered release, and remained in police custody for a court appearance today.
Truck and boat trailer stolen
Sometime between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, someone stole a red 2003 Ford F350 pickup and black Prestige boat trailer from the parking lot at Grant Narrows Regional Park boat launch.
Ridge Meadows RCMP are trying to locate the stolen truck and boat trailer.
The truck was sporting a BC licence plate AB 4888, at the time of the theft. The trailer plate was UNE25W.
