Violent carjacking in Guildford

A Good Samaritan who tried to intervene was struck by the stolen car.

A woman was violently accosted in a retail parking lot in Guildford this week as her attacker tried to steal her car.

The woman was attacked at her car in a parking lot in the 9000-block of 152 Street on Monday. The suspect, a man in his 50s, managed to steal the woman’s keys and then take the car.

A Good Samaritan tried to intervene, but was struck by the car as the thief took off.

An off-duty police officer also saw the stolen car leave the scene and was able to direct police to its whereabouts approximately 12 blocks to the north.

A man was taken into custody by Surrey RCMP near 102 Avenue and 152 Street and the stolen car recovered.

The woman who was attacked was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The Good Samaritan was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“Even when in busy public areas, always be aware of your surroundings. Keep your head up and look alert,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann regarding personal safety.
