Abbotsford police K9 unit arrests man after pursuit in north Clearbrook neighbourhood

Suspect resists arrest after breaching no-contact order with another citizen two days in a row

A man has been arrested by Abbotsford Police after a 30-minute pursuit with a K9 unit in a north Clearbrook neighbourhood on Friday morning.

“The dog ends up tracking and locating him in a house under construction,” said Const. Jody Thomas, media officer for the Abbotsford Police Department. “He resisted arrest and there was a fight with [officers] and the dog and he was taken into custody.”

The chase started at 7:20 a.m. after police arrived on scene when the suspect breached a no-contact order with another citizen. The man had shown up at a residence on Balsam Cresent and attempted to break in.

The man, in his late 20s, also breached the no-contact order yesterday (Thursday), but was able to evade capture when police arrived on scene. A warrant was put out after he escaped.

Four charges have been laid: two for breaking the no-contact order and two for obstruction of justice. Additional charges may be considered.

The man was taken to hospital for precautionary measures from minor injuries sustained in the arrest.
