IHIT Takes Over Hockey Mom Assault Case in Surrey, B.C.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, i.e. IHIT, has taken over the case of a 53-year-old Surrey, B.C., mom who was recently attacked outside a local arena on Sunday night, when she was waiting around to pick up her son from a hockey tournament. Sources claim that the woman is not likely to survive the attack.

According to the news release issued on Monday by the IHIT, it was explained that the attack took place at around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, after which the woman was found unconscious in the parking lot of the Newton Arena in Surrey, just east of Vancouver. The IHIT explained that the assault seems to have similarities to a previous attack on a female in the same area on Dec. 16. The news release added that Surrey RCMP is investigating the previous incident “and although the motive appears similar these two occurrences have not definitively been linked.” Furthermore, Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT  elucidated that “IHIT is in the early stages of this investigation and this attack appears to be an unprovoked, random attack with a possible motive being robbery.”

Even though the name of the victim has not yet been released, but the president of the Surrey Minor Hockey Association, Harbs Bains, alleged that she was a longtime, “wonderful” volunteer for the organization. He alleged that “it was my understanding that her son was volunteering at the tournament and she was there to pick him up,” while adding remorsefully that “this is just terrible.”
