It started yesterday morning around 10:20 a.m., according to RCMP officer Holly Marks. The incident began when the suspect began arguing with a bus driver after she didn’t pay her fare. When a person asked her to stop swearing at the officer, she threatened to kill her and the complainant’s three children.

She then threw a drink at the youngest child, which instigated a brawl.

After the two left the bus, the woman facing charges allegedly followed the woman towards a local mall, knocking over her four-year-old daughter and kicking her two-year-old daughter in the back.

When police were notified of the incident, a Surrey RCMP officer quickly recognized the description of the suspect and went to her residence. She was arrested just 20 minutes after the entire scene began.

The woman has been in custody ever since. Police have recommended multiple charges of Assault, Assault with a Weapon and Uttering Threats.
