File # 2020-124043
Surrey RCMP is looking for the public’s help in identifying four suspects involved in property damage at Sophie’s Place, a child and youth advocacy centre.
Surveillance obtained as part of this investigation shows four male youths allegedly entering the parking lot of Sophie’s place, located at 94 Avenue and 140 Street, on August 11, 2020, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Three of the four suspects were observed causing damage to an unmarked police vehicle by jumping on the hood. The four youths then entered the playground area, attempted to break into a storage shed, and then damaged several playground toys.
All of the suspects are described as Caucasian males, with brown hair, approximately 14-16 years old. (See attached photos).
This investigation began on August 12, 2020, and after other avenues of investigation have been unsuccessful, Surrey RCMP is asking the public for help in identifying the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
It’s incredibly disappointing to have toys and resources meant to help child-victims thoughtlessly damaged, says Staff Sergeant Lyndsay O’Ruairc, Surrey RCMP Vulnerable Persons Section.
We hope that the public will help identify the suspects involved which will enable us to advance this investigation.
Sophie’s Place, founded in 2012, is a dedicated advocacy centre that helps children who have been victims of physical, mental or sexual abuse.
