Surrey man assaults police

Police Briefs: Whistler man attempts break-in to ex’s home; laptop stolen from Whistler hotel, police say



A Surrey man is facing charges after he reportedly obstructed a police investigation, with a hand from his wife, before assaulting officers this week.

At 11 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21, police responded to a report of a man refusing to leave a local pub, according to a release. Police said they encountered the man nearby, who then “elected to obstruct the police officer in his investigation,” at which point the man’s wife “jumped in to stop police,” the release said. The 38-year-old male then reportedly kicked and head-butted the attending officers.

Both suspects were eventually restrained and arrested. They have since been released with a future court date.
