ABBOTSFORD Police are investigating a hit-and-run road rage incident that occurred last Friday, October 23, at 6:55 p.m. in the Meadow Fair Mall parking lot located at 31940 South Fraser Way.
The victim, driving a gray Kia RIO 5, was followed by a gray Nissan Frontier pick-up as they pulled into the Meadow Fair Mall parking lot.
The victim knew that he was being followed, so he pulled into a parking spot in a well-lit area in front of the Dollarama store. The suspect, driving the Nissan Frontier, parked a few stalls over.
The suspect got out of his car and began to kick at the victim’s car, yelling threats of violence and derogatory comments.
When an older couple on the sidewalk tried to intervene, the suspect began to threaten the older man.
The suspect then returned to the KIA RIO, ripped off the rear windshield wiper and returned to his vehicle. As he was leaving the parking lot, he rammed his truck into the rear of the Kia and fled the scene before police arrival. Luckily, no one was injured during this incident.
The driver is described as a white man in his late 20s to mid-30s. He has short ash blonde hair, stands 6 feet tall and unshaven. He was wearing a black hoodie, black hat, and dark pants.
Investigators have spoken to the registered owner of the suspect vehicle involved in this incident, but little information was gained from this meeting. The driver has yet to be identified. Investigators have spoken to witnesses who indicate many other people were in the mall parking lot, and possible taking video of the incident.
Anyone who was in the area of the Meadow Fair Mall (31940 South Fraser Way) on Friday, October 23 between 6:45 and 7:30 p.m. and has CCTV, dashcam or information about this incident is asked to call 604-859-5225.
