Earlier this week, a video of an intense parking lot fight at Strawberry Hill in Surrey went viral. Thanks to a post on Reddit in the r/Vancouver thread, RCMP are now investigating what looks like a massive brawl that took place over the weekend in the Strawberry Hill mall in Surrey.

The posted video shows what looks to be a dozen young men engaged in violently kicking, smacking and pushing each other. In the 26 second clip, which appears to be filmed from behind a tree, you can see several men brawling and one man is repeatedly kicked by several men while down on the ground.

Shockingly, the police were not notified of the incident until after the video had been posted on Reddit. There are so many people in the video that it's surprising that no one apparently called the police.

Intermittent weekend power outages keep South Surrey residents in the dark

Intermittent weekend power outages keep South Surrey residents in the dark South Surrey residents are frustrated by a number of intermittent power outages the weekend of August 10-12, due to issues at one of BC Hydro's local substations.

Narcity spoke with Constable Richard Wright who said there were no updates to speak of at the time but confirmed that the RCMP is investigating the incident.

The Strawberry Hill area is well known to the RCMP who have a proactive enforcement project in place. They actually call the area a "hot spot" and it's subject to many patrols.

When asked why no one called the police during the incident, Constable Richard Wright replied "That's the million-dollar question. This behaviour in the video is completely unacceptable and we encourage people when they see these behaviours to call us.”

Mounties bust Surrey drug lab allegedly linked to Brothers Keepers gang

Mounties bust Surrey drug lab allegedly linked to Brothers Keepers gang Surrey RCMP arrested two men linked to the Brothers Keepers gang at a South Surrey drug lab last week where police also seized large quantities of fake Oxycontin, Percocet and heroin pills plus seven semi-automatic firearms. Const. Richard Wright said Thursday that neither man has yet been charged, but that the investigation is continuing. “The initial investigation has identified connections to the Lower Mainland gang conflict and, in particular, the Brothers Keepers crime group,” he said. The Brothers Keepers have been locked in a bloody war with rivals from the break-away Kang group, as well as gangsters associated with the United Nations gang.

So far, no one in the video has been identified. Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to get in touch with investigators at 604-599-0502. Speaking to Post Media, Constable Richard Wright confirmed that the location in the video is the parking lot at the Strawberry Hills Cineplex Cinemas.

It's not clear what precipitated the fight, although according to Karen Reid-Sidhu, the head of the Surrey Crime Prevention Society, who spoke with Surrey Now-Leader, incidents like this happen all of the time. Youth volunteers for the Surrey Crime Prevention Society were and "witnessed the youth hanging out, and growing in size” and they documented what they saw.

Questions remain as RCMP continue to investigate Sea to Sky gondola vandalism.
Sea to Sky Gondola general manager Kirby Brown calls the incident unprecedented, saying it could impact the entire uphill lift industry. "It will change things," he said. "We are in conversation with industry partners about additional security measures and steps. It's certainly an eye-opening moment in time." A Grouse Mountain spokesperson told Global News it has set up safety procedures for its Skyride gondola, including daily equipment checks, since the incident in Squamish. The crime required cutting a cable 55 milimetres wide and weighing about 22 pounds per metre.
