RCMP seek public’s assistance in Chilliwack road rage investigation

THE RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance for dash cam video in an investigation into an alleged road rage incident.

On June 16 at approximately 3:30 p.m., a motorist attended the Chilliwack RCMP detachment to report a road rage incident at the traffic circle in the 8000-block of Lickman Road.

Earlier, at around 3:15 p.m., a motorist travelling through the Lickman Road roundabout was cut off by the operator of a black truck towing a black dump trailer who then blocked the road, grabbed the first motorist and threatened to punch the victim.

Frontline officers responded to the report and conducted patrols of the area. However, they could not locate the black truck.

As Chilliwack RCMP pursue their investigation, police are reaching out to motorists travelling on Lickman Road and Luckakuck Way on June 16, between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., who may have witnessed the stopped vehicles or obtained dash cam video, to contact them.

“It is fortunate that no one was injured during the incident,” said Cpl. Mike Rail, spokesperson for the UFVRD. “We are reaching out to motorists who may have captured images of the incident and the driver of the black truck to contact police.”

RCMP urge anyone with information regarding this investigation to call police at 604-792-4611 or, should they wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
