A 19-year-old man and teenage boy were arrested by police early Monday after an assault at a Pitt Meadows townhouse complex.

Police were called to the property on Ford Road just before 1:30 a.m. and found a teenage boy had been injured in a physical altercation.

The boy was taken to hospital, where he remains.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said investigators found two people alleged involved in the assault and arrested them later that morning.

The pair were released from custody with strict conditions. Police are recommending the pair be charged with aggravated assault.

Police are asking any witnesses to contact investigators at 604-463-6251.


Suspicious man

Mounties are trying to identify a man who tried to talk to a young boy Monday in Pitt Meadows.

Police said around 11:30 a.m., the man approached the boy who was walking with his family on trail near Harris Road and Fraser Dyke Road.

The older man told the boy it was all right to talk to strangers.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the man did not touch the boy or attempt to lure him away, as he continued walking in the opposite direction of the family.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 60s, approximately 6-1 tall, with a slim build.  He has short white hair, with a grey goatee and was wearing a black baseball hat, a white shirt with a ‘BMW’ logo, a black poncho and a black fanny bag.


Stolen truck

Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for a truck and boat trailer stolen from a boat launch in Pitt Meadows on Saturday.

The theft happened between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the parking lot at the Grant Narrows Regional Park.

The stolen truck is a red 2003 Ford F350 pickup truck, which was attached to a black Prestige boat trailer.  The truck had British Columbia licence plates AB4888 on it at the time of the theft, while the trailer had licence plate UNE25W.


Angry man

A man who kicked down the door to the RCMP detachment in Maple Ridge could face a charge of mischief.

The 38-year-old was arrested around 11:20 p.m. Friday after he broke the glass door.

Police said the man exhibited signs of mental health issues.

Officers inside the detachment took him into custody. He was released by a justice of peace after he calmed down.



A 43-year-old man was arrested by police early Friday after he was found violating his bail conditions.

Around 9 a.m., police were called by a resident who noticed a man in Kanaka Creek Regional Park on River Road with what he believed was stolen property.

Officers found the man and located tools in his possession. He also did not have a copy of the court order on him, which is a violation of his bail conditions.

The man was arrested and remanded in custody by a justice of peace until Tuesday.
