Emergency medical care was provided and the female was transported to hospital with serious injuries.
On September 28, members of the Abbotsford Police’s Major Crime Unit, with Surrey RCMP’s assistance, arrested a male youth in relation to this incident.
The BC Prosecution Service approved charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and robbery.
On October 19, 16-year-old Diego Guevara was released from custody pending his next court appearance. However, he failed to appear, and a warrant for his arrest was issued on November 9.
All attempts to locate Guevara were unsuccessful and on January 11, 2023, the Abbotsford Police Department was granted a court order to seek public assistance in finding him. Guevara is a youth and is currently wanted on three counts of robbery and aggravated assault, police said.
