One man from Surrey and another from Langley facing multiple charges; injured officers released from hospital.

Two of three suspects involved in a dramatic incident in Surrey on Friday that sent three people to hospital – including two police officers – are now facing criminal charges.

It was shortly after noon on Nov. 21 when plain-clothed RCMP officers in several vehicles cornered a suspect truck in the parking lot of the Cedar Tree Village apartment complex on Hall Road, near King George Boulevard and 72 Avenue.

Surrey RCMP said the pickup truck tried to flee, ramming two police vehicles. Police fired their guns, but no one was struck.

Langley’s Daniel Monaghan, 26, has been charged with two counts of assault with a weapon, two of assaulting a peace officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer, possessing a break-in instrument, and dealing with an identity document without lawful excuse.

Surrey’s David Traill, 52, is charged with being a passenger in a stolen vehicle, resisting arrest and breach of a conditional sentence order.

The third suspect, a 21-year-old female, was released from custody, but may be charged at a later date.

Two officers injured when their cars were rammed have since been released from hospital and are recovering from minor injuries.

Langley RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit has taken conduct of the officer-involved shooting portion of the investigation.
