2017-07-24 14:04 PDT
File # 2011-34856
A 39-year-old Maple Ridge man has been charged with Aggravated Assault for a stabbing that occurred at the Coquitlam Centre bus loop in 2011.
The alleged attack happened in the early morning hours of December 15, 2011, near the corner of Barnet Highway and Lougheed Highway. In February of 2012, Coquitlam RCMP held a news conference asking for help identifying a suspect. Although there was not enough evidence for charges at the time, tips from the public helped move the file forward and the Coquitlam RCMP Major Crime Unit never closed the case or stopped investigating.
After more than five years of work, a charge of Aggravated Assault has now been laid against 39-year-old Tyrel William Scott. During the course of the investigation, additional evidence was gathered that led to 14 more charges including:
- Five counts of possession of a firearm while prohibited,
- Four counts of possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon,
- Three counts of possession of a firearm without a license,
- Two counts of possession of a weapon.
Scott is currently in custody and his next court appearance is July 26, 2017.
