SURREY RCMP are actively looking for 42-year-old Amardip Singh Rai who is wanted on 17 charges stemming from an investigation that began in August 2019.
On April 28, 2021, Rai was arrested by the Surrey RCMP Strike Force Target Team (SFTT) for an outstanding warrant pertaining to the August 2019 investigation. He was released by the courts on May 7, 2021, with conditions.
It is alleged that Rai failed to appear for a subsequent court date and therefore a warrant was issued for his arrest. Despite police efforts, he has not yet been located.
Rai currently has an outstanding warrant with charges that include:
* Sexual assault;
* Confining a person without lawful authority;
* Administer noxious thing with the intent to endanger the life or cause bodily harm;
* Two counts of assault with a weapon;
* Nine firearms-related charges, some of which include possession of a firearm without license and/or registration; and
* Three counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Rai is described as a 42-year-old South Asian Male, 5’11, slim build, with brown eyes, and black ha. He often has facial hair. He has tattoos including roses on his hands, a scroll with words on his neck, a cancer ribbon on his neck and a tiger on his chest.
If you see Rai, do not approach him and call police immediately. In addition, anyone with information about Rai is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
