New Westminster Police Department want to speak with anyone who may have witnessed an incident at the Tim Hortons at Shops at New West early last month.
On Thursday, Sept. 6 at around 7:20 p.m. officers were called to the Tim Hortons at Eighth and Carnarvon streets following reports of a hostile man inside the restaurant, according to a press release from police.
Police say the suspect had ordered an Iced Capp but when it arrived, he complained to staff that the order was wrong. In surveillance footage of the incident, the suspect is seen verbally attacking staff before eventually pouring the Iced Capp on the counter and knocking the register onto to the ground.
Before fleeing the scene, police allege the suspect kicked and punched another customer who had tried to intervene in the incident.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his 20s. He stands about five-feet-six-inches and has a medium build with short brown hair. He was wearing a pink T-shirt and black pants at the time of the incident.
“It is concerning that someone can become that irate over an apparently incorrect order, but thankfully nobody was seriously injured,” Sgt. Jeff Scott said in the release. “We are asking for the assistance of the public to identify the suspect, which will help continue our investigation into the alleged assault and mischief.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the New Westminster Police Department at 604-525-5411
