The RCMP has issued a Canada-wide warrant for a Burnaby man after an incident with a police officer in late December.
Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Michael McLaughlin says the man was being arrested by a Port Moody police officer before he broke free and hit the officer with his car.
“Fortunately the police officer is going to be okay; however, now we have to deal with the consequences of a very serious breach of the law. We’ve issued a Canada-wide warrant for Marek Anisimowicz.”
Anisimowicz is 36-years-old, about 5’11” and 220 pounds with a unique neck tattoo in cursive writing on the right-side of his neck.
“The RCMP has been investigating very thoroughly trying to find Mr. Anisimovic. However, we’ve been led to believe that there’s a strong possibility he’s now outside the province.”
RCMP caution that anyone who sees Anisimovic should not approach him.
Anyone with information about Anisimovic is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
