A man running in traffic on Fraser Highway shirtless was taken away in an ambulance near the Surrey-Langley border on Monday morning.
Surrey RCMP responded to the incident, which took place near the Westbrook Centre, which sits on both sides of the municipal boundary, at about 9:30 a.m.
Police were responding to reports of a man running in traffic, according to Cpl. Vanessa Munn of the Surrey RCMP.
A witness said that multiple officers had to hold down a man who was wearing only his boxer shorts. They eventually got him strapped to a gurney and loaded him into an ambulance shortly before 10 a.m.
The man was shouting “Help, they’re killing me!” as he was taken away.
Munn said it appeared to be a mental health incident.
Traffic heading west from Langley to Surrey was slowed slightly by the large number of emergency responders, which included BC Ambulance, multiple RCMP vehicles, and a fire truck.
