Burnaby RCMP looking for a person accused of pepper spraying two men in an 'apparent road-rage incident' last month

Mounties say it's believed a pepper spray incident stemmed from a lane change earlier in the day

BURNABY (NEWS 1130) – An “apparent road-rage incident” in Burnaby last month resulted in two men being pepper-sprayed, according to the RCMP.

Mounties say it happened on Dec. 29 near McGill Park just before noon.

“The victims believe the incident stemmed from a lane change earlier in the day, which escalated to this act of road rage,” a release from the RCMP reads.

The suspect is reported to have parked his truck, gotten out, and walked over to spray the two men before he got back into a white Ford F150 and drove off.

Investigators are hoping someone will be able to identify this man. He’s said to have been wearing a black hoodie with the phrase “You dream it, we build it” in white on the back. He was also wearing black pants and black shoes at the time of the incident.

He’s described as possibly Caucasian, 5’8″ to 5’10” tall, and in his late 20s to mid-30s.

“We believe someone will recognize this suspect or the crest and slogan on his hoodie,” says Corporal Mike Kalanj. “This was not a quick reaction, the suspect had plenty of time to think about his actions and he chose to respond in this violent manner.”

The truck he was seen driving off in is described as a newer model Ford F150 Supercrew. It appears to be a 5′ bed with black tonneau cover, has tinted rear and back windows, a chrome bumper, a single chrome ball mounted trailer hitch, six spoke brushed aluminum rims, and a partial logo on the front passenger side that looks to be covered.
