SURREY RCMP are seeking assistance with furthering an investigation into the assault on a security guard at the Dollarama store in Guildford Mall.
Surrey RCMP began investigating this assault after receiving a copy of a video from some reporters who had located it on social media. The incident had not yet been reported to the police. The video shows an unmasked man spitting in the face of a security guard who was escorting him from the store.
Through investigation, officers have identified the security guard’s employer and learned the incident occurred on April 6 at approximately 5:30 p.m. Investigators are now seeking the public’s assistance with identifying the suspect of the assault (see photos).
Investigators are also appealing to any witnesses, including the person who filmed the video, to come forward to help advance this investigation.
“The video of the assault on the security guard was disgusting,” said Superintendent Manly Burleigh, Surrey RCMP Operations Officer. “This type of behaviour is unacceptable – we urge anyone that has experienced this type of violence to report the incident to police.”
Anyone with more information, including dashcam footage around the Guildford Mall area between 5 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. on April 6 is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file 2021-50419.
