As the matter is before the courts, the Surrey RCMP will not be commenting further on this investigation.

This incident occurred in a very public place and was concerning to police and the community. We are glad that the thorough investigation by our Serious Crime Unit has led to charge approval, says Cpl. James Mason Media Relations Officer Surrey RCMP.
