Community Help Leads to Attempted Murder Charge for 2016 Attack

File # 2016-33100

Cooperative witnesses and a six-month investigation by Coquitlam RCMP have led to serious charges against a 26-year-old man from Port Coquitlam.

Sina Mohammed Ali Tabrizi faces one charge of Attempted Murder, and an additional charge of Break and Enter, related to two incidents that happened on October 3, 2016. The first incident was in the early morning hours at an isolated area on Pipeline Road in Coquitlam. A 29-year-old man was attacked with an edged weapon and received life-threatening injuries. Shortly after the first attack, there was a break-in to the same victim’s home.

These crimes were not random and the public was never believed to be at risk; the victim and his accused attacker knew each other through the drug trade.

This is a reminder that the drug trade involves a lot of dangers, says Sergeant Tony Porato with Coquitlam RCMP’s Investigative Support Team, it’s not a glamourous lifestyle. You can quickly go from short-term profit to nearly losing your life.

This was a complicated investigation that required the cooperation of the community and witnesses; without them, crucial evidence would not have been found and this crime could not have been solved.

Tabrizi is scheduled for court today (April 13, 2017) to set his next court appearance.
