The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is trying to track down a man who was riding an electric scooter when he cut off a driver in traffic and then slashed a tire on the driver’s vehicle.

APD media officer Const. Art Stele said the incident occurred at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday (May 13) at the intersection of King Road and the King Connector.

He said initial reports indicate that after the man on the scooter cut off a vehicle, he became confrontational with the driver and slashed one of the tires on the car.

The victim reported that the suspect left westbound on King Road. He was described as being in his 20s and having a slim build. He was wearing all-black clothing and white gloves, and riding an electric scooter with distinct blue lighting.

He said, under the Criminal Code, the incident qualifies as an assault.

Stele said University of Fraser Valley (UFV) has since reported that a man matching the description was seen riding the described scooter in and around the Abbotsford campus in the past week.

It is not known if the man is connected to the university.

Stele said the APD is working with campus security and have increased their presence in the area.

Anyone with information or who can identify the suspect is asked to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
