Surrey Mounties are hunting for a suspect involved in a violent series of events this morning.
Shortly after 10:30, an officer pulled over a suspicious vehicle, but the driver quickly fled the scene.
Sergeant Alanna Dunlop says that triggered the dangerous events.
“The suspect fled from police and then struck an occupied vehicle nearby. He then left his vehicle, approached an occupied car and assaulted the driver, and fled in this person’s vehicle.”
Dunlop is appealing for witnesses.
“Certainly this being a busy area, there are people that did see what happened. And this being a series of events, there are likely people who saw it that have not spoken with police.”
That stolen vehicle was later recovered in the 114-hundred block of 137th Street, but the suspect still remains on the loose.
RCMP say he fled on foot and is being described as a South Asian male around 25 to 30 years old with a white and black pit bull.
