On November 22, 2022 at approximately 12:38 a.m. a youth attended the Surrey RCMP police detachment located at 10395 148 Street after being hit in the face by a firework a short distance away.
The victim and a friend were on 148 Street near the intersection of 104 Avenue and 148 Street when a small, white, 4-door hatchback (with a sunroof) drove slowly past them and an occupant of the vehicle fired a firework directly at the two pedestrians. The firework hit the victim’s forehead and minor injuries were sustained.
The investigation is in early stages and based on current information appears to be an isolated incident.
Investigators have reviewed the traffic camera footage from the intersection and are releasing a photo of the suspect vehicle (see attached photo). There were two other vehicles in the area that may have witnessed this incident.
Police are asking for anyone in the area who witnessed the incident or has dash camera footage to contact police. The suspect vehicle was travelling south on 148 street at 12:34 a.m. when the firework was shot off and then the vehicle turned right (westbound) onto 104 Avenue.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502
