A cab driver was assault early Sunday in Maple Ridge after telling a group of people he didn’t have room for all of them.

At about 1:30 a.m., police said, the driver was approached by several people in the 24200 block of Dewdney Trunk Road. They wanted a ride.

“The victim told the group he didn’t have room in his cab for everyone,” Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said.  “One of the men began to argue with the driver, and this escalated into a full on physical assault of the driver.”

Two men were taken into custody and interviewed.

“Due to the fact that a significant amount of further investigation is required, both suspects were released from custody, but will appear in court on a later date,” Dunlop added. “Investigators will be following up with the victim and other witnesses as the case continues.”

 

Aggressive driving

Ridge Meadows RCMP are also looking to identify the drivers of vehicles seen driving aggressively in the gravel parking lots at Albion Sports Complex.

“Police have received numerous complaints about vehicles accelerating rapidly, which tosses gravel all over the lot,”  Dunlop said.  “This behaviour has been reported from time to time in the past, but Ridge Meadows RCMP have received an increase in these type of calls lately.”

Police are asking any witnesses to get licence plate numbers of vehicles and description of vehicles.

Police could lay issue a fine of $196 for driving without consideration under the Motor Vehicle Act.  The provisions also include six points on driving records.

• Anyone with any information regarding this type of incident is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at the non-emergency line, 604-463-6251.
