A Surrey man has been charged after an altercation on the 11200 block of 72nd Ave. Sunday night.
Delta police were called to a dispute in North Delta around 9:15 p.m. Aug. 5.
Upon investigation police determined that two vehicles had been travelling eastbound on 72nd Ave. Both vehicles had pulled over, as a result of an apparent driving dispute, involving allegations of tailgating and high-beaming.
“The passenger of a Volkswagen vehicle is suspected to have exited the car, and then bear sprayed the occupants of a Dodge vehicle,” said DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf. “A further occupant of the Volkswagen vehicle then got out of the vehicle. However, during this process he is believed to have stepped into oncoming traffic, and was struck by an oncoming Ford truck. The driver of the Ford truck immediately stopped the vehicle and called 9-1-1.”
Leykauf said paramedics arrived and transported the man to hospital. He is believed to have received life-threatening injuries.
Mahamed Halane, age 28, of Surrey, has now been charged with one count of assault with a weapon. He has been released on conditions and will next appear in court on Aug. 21.
