Woman assaulted

The RCMP are on the lookout for two males after a woman was robbed on the 18800 block of Lougheed Highway on Monday evening.

Two males assaulted a female victim around 9:40 p.m. by pushing her to the ground. One of the males took her wallet, described as blue with white polka dots.

The males both fled west on foot.

RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said, fortunately, the female victim was not seriously injured.

“She was, however, traumatized and delayed reporting this to us. The area where this occurred is a public walkway between two residences that leads from the 11800 block of 228th Street to Burnett Street in Maple Ridge. We would like to speak to anyone that may have seen or heard anything in this area around the time of this offence,” said Dunlop.

• Any with information to the assault should call the Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251. Anonymous tips can be left with CrimeStoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.solvecrime.ca. Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Would-be robbers

Maple Ridge police want to hear from you if you’re missing a 16-litre air compressor made by a brand-name manufacturer.

Early Wednesday someone called Ridge Meadows RCMP about a group of suspicious males hanging about 224th Street and Abernethy Way.

Police attended and tried to talk to one of them, but he took off, only to be caught a short time later. A 36-year-old man was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Kamloops.

Suspect bolts, gets caught

Police have arrested a 19-year-old Coquitlam man following a report of an attempted robbery Sunday at 6 a.m. in the 12200-block Harris Road in Pitt Meadows.

When the suspect entered the business, police didn’t say which one, he asked staff for money – but then ran off before he got any. Police showed up and nabbed a suspect anyways, near Pitt Meadows city hall, based on a detailed description.

Facebook follies

Police have to attend to all types of duties during the course of the day – such as help return a stolen industrial dryer from a business on 228th and Dewdney Trunk Road. The dryer was recovered from a nearby drug house, says one of the Maple Ridge Facebook groups, which caught a photo of the police helping out.
