Burglar gets into brawl with tenant

One arrested after Monday afternoon break-in in the 10100 block of Allard Crescent

  • Sep. 22, 2014 8:00 a.m.



A burglar got more than he bargained for when he broke into a Langley residence.

Police said the break-and-enter around 1 p.m. Monday (Sept. 22)  in 10100 block of Allard Crescent was interrupted when a tenant,  accompanied by his friend, entered his home and came face-to-face with the thief.

The suspect had a large knife in his hand, but that did not deter the tenant, who grappled with the burglar.

During the struggle, both men fell down a set of stairs.

The suspect was stabbed in the leg and the tenant was stabbed in the hand during the fall.

The wounded suspect attempted to flee through the carport and steal a vehicle from the driveway belonging to the tenant’s friend.

He was unsuccessful as the tenant and the vehicle’s owner pulled him from the vehicle.

Both the tenant and the suspect have been transported to hospital.

It appears the burglar arrived on a motorbike stolen out of Maple Ridge.

Police also arrested a woman believed to be associated to the suspect, standing at the entrance to the property.
