Man bitten at Pitt Meadows bar

29-year-old Chilliwack man treated for wounds to his ear after altercation at Rooster's Country Cabaret

  • Dec. 12, 2011 2:00 p.m.

A man was arrested by police Saturday after a man was bitten on his ear by another man at a Pitt Meadows bar.

Police were called to Rooster’s Country Cabaret around 12:30 a.m. after a fight broke out inside.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said a 29-year-old man from Chilliwack took a drink from the victim and a friend, then proceeded to hit the victim.

Other patrons and bar staff subdued him and held him until Ridge Meadows RCMP arrived.

The man he attacked was treated at the scene for bite wounds.

The Chilliwack man was arrested and held in custody over the weekend.

Dunlop said the man was out on parole at the time of the incident. It has since been revoked.

Police are recommending a charge of assault causing bodily harm against him.

 

Thieves scared off

Two people were scared off by a neighbour Sunday after a section of a garden hose was stolen from a house in Pitt Meadows.

A man and a woman were spotted on 189A Street around 1 p.m., cutting the hose and walking towards a parked car.

A neighbour called police, but the couple ran off before officers arrived.

Police, however, found two gas cans, two pieces of hoses and a chainsaw dumped at a nearby elementary school.

The suspects are both Caucasian and between 20 to 25 years old.

The man was wearing a baseball hat, a black jacket, blue jeans and was carrying a black backpack.

The woman had blond hair, was wearing white pants and carrying a pink backpack.

Police are looking for the owner of the chainsaw, as theft reports failed to match the item to stolen property reports.

Cyclist hurt

Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a crash that has sent a 71-year-old cyclist to hospital on Friday in Pitt Meadows.

The man was hit by a car traveling west on Old Dewdney Trunk Road while crossing at Hale Road around 5 p.m.

Paramedics with the B.C. Ambulance Service took the cyclist to hospital with head injuries.

Police said officers continue to investigate the crash to determine who was at fault.

 

Drunk driver

A Maple Ridge resident helped police take a drunk driver off the road early Friday morning.

The resident approached a police officer around 3 a.m. to report a possibly impaired man behind the wheel of a grey pickup truck.

Police caught up to the truck in the 22300-block of Selkirk Avenue and pulled it over.

Breath samples taken from the driver showed his blood-alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit.

The 26-year-old Maple Ridge man was arrested and later released with a court date set for March 2012.

 

Man charged

A man from Langley faces charges in connection with a break-in at a gas station in Maple Ridge.

Ridge Meadows RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit arrested the 45-year-old on Thursday around 4:30 a.m. after receiving a call about the break-and-enter.

A plain clothes officer noticed a man with a bicycle lurking around.

When the officer went to speak with him, the man jumped on his bike and tried to escape.

Police pursued the man and caught him a short distance away.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the man is known to police and classified him as a “prolific” or repeat offender.

The man was remanded in custody by a justice of peace.
