RCMP are looking for Montgomery Ash after an alleged abduction in Yarrow on Nov. 5.

The man wanted for the alleged abduction of a Chilliwack woman at a residence in Yarrow 11 days ago was arrested in Surrey on Tuesday.

Montgomery James Ash, 21, of Surrey, was wanted for break and enter with intent to commit offence, assault with a weapon, attempting to choke to overcome resistance, kidnapping, assault causing bodily harm, and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.

The warrant stemmed from the investigation of a report made to police on Nov. 5 at approximately 4:15 a.m. of a break and enter and abduction at a residence in Yarrow.

General Duty officers immediately arrived at the address and located a male who told police he had been assaulted by the suspect who had forced his way into the home and abducted a female from the house. Supported by RCMP investigators of the General Investigation Support Team, and the UFVRD Serious Crime Unit police initiated a multi-jurisdictional search for the missing woman.

She was found approximately one hour later in Surrey.

Both victims were examined for non-life threatening injuries and released from hospital.

Police thanked the media, the community, the Delta Police Department and Surrey RCMP for locating Ash.
