Busy Halloween for Surrey and Delta police

SURREY and DELTA — Three pedestrians were badly injured — one of them a three-year-old boy — in traffic collisions in Surrey on Halloween night.

The child was out trick-or-treating with his mom, at about 7 p.m. Saturday, when they were hit by a car in the 13200-block of 62nd Avenue in Newton. The boy’s leg was broken and his mother had cuts to her leg.

Police said the driver was turning and tried to stop in time, but couldn’t. He stayed at the scene. Police said alcohol was not a factor in the collision. The investigation continues.

Roughly two hours later, in the 8300-block of 144th Street in Newton, a car hit a 57-year-old man. The pedestrian was taken to hospital in critical condition. The driver stayed at the scene and police are continuing their investigation.

Police ask witnesses to either collision to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

It was a busy Halloween in Surrey, with the RCMP receiving roughly 900 complaint calls in 24 hours. During the same period one week prior, police received about 600 calls.

Roughly 20 per cent of the calls on Halloween were fireworks related.

Delta Police were also busy on Halloween, responding to 155 calls. The most serious concerned a stabbing in the 8500-block of Arpe Road in North Delta.

The victim, an 18-year-old man, was stabbed in  a driveway. He was taken to hospital and is in stable condition with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. The suspect, 18-year-old Clayton Pogue of Delta, has been charged with aggravated assault.

“He appeared before a judicial Justice of the Peace who released him on a recognizance of bail with strict conditions that include, but are not limited to, no contacts with the victim, witnesses and a curfew,” said Sgt, Sarah Swallow. Pogue is expected to appear in court on Nov. 23.

The majority of calls Delta Police dealt with on Halloween were fireworks related. There were also several impaired driving investigations.

“There was also an in-progress break and enter to an empty restaurant that resulted in two people being taken into custody,” Swallow said.
