Suspect in custody, baby ok after carjacking in Surrey

SURREY — Surrey Mounties have a suspect in custody following a hair-raising situation in North Surrey on Tuesday afternoon.

At about 12:30 p.m. police responding to a report about a man with a gun near 186th Street and Fraser Highway heard enroute that a pickup truck had been stolen, by the gunman they were looking for, with a female inside.

The suspect bailed from the pickup after a crash involving multiple vehicles near Fraser Highway and 68th Avenue and then stole a Ford Escape, which was found abandoned with a baby inside near 96th Avenue and 158th Street. A 24-year-old man will appear in Surrey provincial court on Dec. 27 and police have recommended charges of robbery with a firearm, assault with a weapon, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and unlawful confinement.

“The baby has since been reunited with his mother and is apparently unharmed,” Paquet said. "None of the multiple victims involved in this investigation were seriously injured, however, they are all recovering from this very traumatic experience.

"What a wonderful Christmas present to be able to return this baby into the arms of her mother," Paquet said.
