A 30-year-old Delta man was arrested following a violent outburst at a Richmond fast food restaurant.
Richmond RCMP officers responded to a location in the Ironwood plaza around 3:40 p.m. yesterday. Restaurant employees called the police after a customer allegedly began damaging property inside the restaurant. Police say the suspect then began fighting with them during his arrest.
During the incident, two restaurant employees and two police officers were allegedly assaulted, each sustaining minor injuries. The suspect also sustained minor injuries and was taken to Richmond Hospital for treatment. He is currently in custody awaiting a bail hearing, and faces possible charges of mischief, assault and assault of a peace officer.
When asked about possible video of the incident, Cpl. Ian Henderson said, “We are aware that there may be relevant video circulating on social media. However, this investigation is still ongoing and it would be inappropriate to speak to this apparent evidence at this time.”
