On December 22, 2019, at around 3:20 p.m., police attempted to pull over a vehicle in the 1700 block of Elphinstone Street. The vehicle evaded police, drove into oncoming traffic, and police disengaged.
A short while later, police were dispatched to a hit and run, involving the same vehicle, that occurred at the intersection of Lewvan Drive and Dewdney Avenue. Minor damage to two vehicles was reported. No injuries were sustained. The suspect vehicle continued travelling southbound on Lewvan Drive and collided with a third vehicle at the intersection of Lewvan Drive and Gordon Road. At that point, the driver of the suspect vehicle fled on foot and was apprehended by police.
