Ridge meadows RCMP confirm they are investigating an incident involving a man jumping onto a moving vehicle. All parties have been identified. More details on Monday.— Ridge Meadows RCMP (@RidgeRCMP) January 26, 2020
This incident was shared on social media before police received the video evidence, which caused much speculation, stated Constable Julie Klaussner.
We understand in this day and age the allure of social media but we want to remind the public that, these are real people. Please consider the perspective of the victim and the fact that what you share, or when you share, may have an impact on the investigational outcome. There is always more to the before, during and after of an incident and not just a short video clip you see on social media.
According to police, the female driver of the vehicle and the male suspect are known to each other.
The man has been arrested for assault and mischief.
