File # 2024-79230

A man has been arrested three times within days for the same offence by Surrey RCMP. Two of the incidents required the assistance of Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team (LMD IERT) to arrest the accused man.

On June 3, 2024, Surrey RCMP responded to a report of an assault at a residence. The accused man barricaded himself within the home and was taken into custody with the assistance of LMD IERT. (See previous release).

On June 4, 2024, Randall Tremblay was charged with one count of assault and released by the courts with court-imposed conditions which included no direct or indirect contact with the victim. The victim was notified of the accused’s release and a safety plan was discussed.

On June 5, 2024 while doing a follow up with the victim to the previous investigation, frontline officers learned the accused was breaching his court-imposed conditions. He was re-arrested and appeared in court on June 5, 2024. Randall Tremblay was charged with 2 counts of breach of his release order.

On the afternoon of June 6, 2024, Randall Tremblay was released again by courts with additional conditions. On June 6, 2024 at 4:30 pm, Surrey RCMP frontline officers learned that accused was already breaching his court-imposed conditions.

Officers instructed Tremblay to exit his location; however, he barricaded himself and refused to exit. Surrey RCMP requested the assistance of LMD IERT and after several hours, the suspect was safely taken in to custody. No one was injured during this incident. Tremblay remains in custody for the alleged assault and breaches of his court-imposed conditions until his bail hearing, currently set for June 10, 2024.

These types of incidents are a significant draw on resources from within the detachment and our integrated units, says Superintendent Bill Parmar, Core Policing Officer, Surrey RCMP. It is concerning when we have to request the support of the Emergency Response Team twice within days regarding the same individual. As officers, our primary role is to investigate criminal offences, but our ultimate goal is victim safety.
