Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a 23-year-old Maple Ridge man after a stabbing incident Tuesday.

At approximately 7 p.m., an altercation between two men took place in the area of the Pitt Meadows library on Harris Road.

Police believe the suspect stabbed another man during a fight, then ran off.

An extensive search by police, including the assistance of the Integrated Police Dog Services, led to the apprehension of the suspect.

He was arrested without incident in the 21500 block of Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge at approximately 9:30 p.m.

The 19-year-old victim was taken to hospital with what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries. “Ridge Meadows RCMP want to acknowledge the quick actions of a youth worker at the Pitt Meadows rec centre for her assistance in helping assist the victim with some first aid before B.C. Ambulance Service personnel arrived,” said Cpl. Brenda Winpenny.

The accused is very well known to police. Thankfully the injuries the victim suffered do not appear to be serious, and it is expected he will make a full recovery.

The accused remains in custody for a hearing later today.

• Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.

Arrest at tire shop

A 28-year-old man was arrested at a Maple Ridge tire shop a day after another theft.

Several aluminum tire rims were stolen from the shop  Friday, Nov. 6.

The suspect was arrested about 3:30 a.m. the next day after breaking into a fenced compound at the business.

The lead investigator for the RCMP happened to be there at the time and saw the man leaving with two more tire rims.

The suspect is known to police.

 

Credit cards, drivers’ licences found

Ridge Meadows RCMP say on Monday, a canine team member saw a man sleeping in his pickup truck in downtown Maple Ridge.

Also in plain view in the truck were several individual packages of what police believed to be heroin. That led to a search of the truck in which police found credit cards and drivers’ licences.

A 38-year-old man was arrested and appeared in court Tuesday.
