Police surround Crescent Beach home; argument leads to arrest warrant

A minor altercation between two men in Crescent Beach Wednesday night ended with a major response from police – and a warrant for one man's arrest – after it was reported a gun may be involved.

A minor altercation between two men in Crescent Beach Wednesday night ended with a major response from police – and a warrant for one man’s arrest – after it was reported a gun may be involved.

Surrey RCMP and officers with the Emergency Response Team surrounded a McBride Avenue home just before 7 p.m. July 6.

Police say they were called after someone reported men were arguing and that a gun was being waved in a threatening manner.

McBride Avenue was closed and the home’s occupants ordered out while police investigated. Two pellet guns were seized. Witness interviews led police to issue an arrest warrant for a 21-year-old South Surrey man who reportedly fled the scene prior to police arrival, then turned himself in the next day.

No one was injured, and the home’s occupants were co-operative, police say.

Police would not disclose what the men had been arguing about.

Lucas Grant has been charged in connection with the incident, and is due back in Surrey Provincial Court July 22 on charges of assault with a weapon, uttering threats and possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes.

It was the second time in recent months that a gun report has brought police to McBride Avenue. In March, shots were fired and 23-year-old Brendon Beddow was killed when police were dispatched to a disturbance.

Vancouver Police Department is investigating that police-involved shooting.
