Police take a man into custody following a crime spree through three cities.

Delta man nabbed in relation to crime spree

Robberies, stabbings and collisions all believed to be committed by the same man, ended in capture of suspect in Surrey.

A Delta man has been arrested following a crime spree that included robberies, stabbings and collisions which spanned three cities.

At 6 p.m. Sunday, a man was speeding on Highway 91 in Richmond when he rear-ended a minivan with three people in it. The van was sent spinning down the highway.

The suspect of the van then took off on foot.

Then, an elderly man was stabbed several times during a home invasion at Deerfield Crescent in Richmond. The suspect then took off in a stolen car and got into a second crash in Vancouver, near Victoria Drive and 27 Avenue.

He then fled and allegedly tried to rob someone using a bank machine.

Police believe the same man stole a car from a family at a gas station across the street from the attempted robbery.

The owner of the car sustained minor injuries, but was able to escape with his wife and two children, aged seven and 10.

A few hours later, the grey Honda Civic was spotted by an RCMP patrol in Delta. The driver took off and got into a third collision near 109 Avenue and 132A Street. He fled on foot.

After a lengthy search police dogs were able to track down the man in a heavily wooded ravine.

The 30-year-old man who was arrested is well-known to police.

The Vancouver Police Department’s major crimes section has taken over the investigation.
