SURREY – An Indo-Canadian trucker with an accent is accused of harassing a young woman late at night as she walked home in South Surrey and then weirdly stealing her phone.
Police in Surrey are looking into a unsettling video that appears to show a truck driver, who appear to be driving a truck for Abbotsford-based Harjap Trucking, harassing a woman as she walks, alone, down a dark road.
The video, posted to Facebook on the weekend by someone claiming to be her friend, has already been viewed thousands of times, reported News 1130.
It’s about a minute long, and appears to show the driver repeatedly and aggressively trying to get the woman into his truck.
She makes it clear that’s not happening by filming the encounter, at one point saying: “Are you kidding me right now? I’m filming you!”
The interaction ends with the driver getting back into his truck and taking off.
The Surrey RCMP has confirmed it is investigating the incident which happened near 188th Street and 32nd Avenue.
Few other details have been revealed.
Dylan Ackimenko, who posted the video on Facebook April 27, wrote that his friend was walking home in the early morning when a semi-truck driver told her, “i will grab you i will drive you.”
In the video of the incident, which was filmed near 188 Street and 32 Avenue, the woman repeatedly tells the man “no” and to “stop.”
Eventually, the man gets back in the semi-truck and drives away.
Ackimenko wrote on Facebook that the man returned, and allegedly pushed the woman down and stole her phone. He wrote that he received the video before her phone was allegedly taken.
“It’s not safe out here,” Ackimenko wrote. “My stomach hurts watching this and listening to the fear in her voice.”
In the post, he writes “Please share and stay safe out there ladies. Take a taxi call a friend it’s not safe out here.”
