Richmond RCMP is seeking dash cam footage for an alleged assault with a weapon during a road rage incident.

At approximately 7:06 pm on December 27, 2022 Richmond RCMP frontline officers attended the 6600 block of Steveston Hwy for an alleged assault with a weapon resulting from a road rage incident.

According to the victim, a black Hyundai sedan was driving closely behind him through the Massey Tunnel and both vehicles exited Hwy 99 on the Steveston Hwy off-ramp. The victim said the two then proceeded Westbound on Steveston Hwy.

As they proceeded Westbound, the other driver was allegedly swerving between lanes behind the victim, and continued to do so until just past No 4 Rd when he allegedly pulled in front and cut the victim off.

The victim stated at this point, both he and the other driver stopped and exited their vehicles, which is when the driver of the Hyundai allegedly sprayed the victim with bear spray.
