Patrol officers conducted extensive patrols in the area, but the suspect was not located. The victim in this incident was injured and extremely shaken due to the suspect’s violent actions. Over the past week, AbbyPD officers have been advancing this investigation, working with Uber and our law enforcement partners to identify and arrest the suspect.

On April 27th at 7 pm, AbbyPD officers located and arrested 38-year-old William Tickle of Abbotsford without incident. The BC Prosecution Service has approved charges of Assault Causing Bodily Harm & Uttering Threats. Mr.Tickle remains in police custody, awaiting a court appearance later today.

“Abbotsford is not immune to random violent attacks. However, thanks to the timely and full cooperation from Mr.Sood and Uber, we swiftly arrested this violent offender. Incidents like these remain a top priority for AbbyPD in bringing these offenders before the court to be accountable for their actions,” said Inspector Kevin Murray.
