Trial scheduled for 'targeted attack'

Two Surrey men charged in connection with a "targeted attack" in White Rock earlier this year are to be tried on the charges over five days starting next week.

Robert Dean Orr and Tyrone Stuart McDougall are scheduled for trial beginning Dec. 3 in Surrey Provincial Court.

The pair were arrested following a May 24 raid in which police rescued a man from a home in the 15300-block of Pacific Avenue. Both were charged with two counts each of forcible confinement, aggravated assault, assault and theft in connection with the incident.

Orr, who remains in custody, was charged with additional counts of assault with a weapon and uttering threats.

Following the raid, police told Peace Arch News a 24-year-old and a 40-year-old – both White Rock residents – suffered injuries in an attack that allegedly occurred on May 22.

Following the rescue, the younger man spent a day in hospital for his injuries. Police reported that his eyes were swollen shut and he had a welt on the back of his head.

The raid was carried out by members of the White Rock RCMP and the CFSEU (Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit), the regional agency that investigates organized crime activity.

On Oct. 26, a warrant was issued for McDougall after he twice failed to appear for a scheduled court dates, however Const. Janelle Shoihet said records indicate McDougall turned himself in days later and the warrant was cancelled.
