A man is facing a string of charges following a chaotic crime spree in Surrey, B.C., over the weekend that involved a violent break and enter and at least eight hit-and-run crashes.

RCMP say the investigation began with a report that came in around 10:30 Saturday night.

“A man had broke into a residence and assaulted people inside that residence prior to fleeing in a vehicle,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Vanessa Munn, who added that the suspect and victims know each other.

“When police were on scene speaking with people at the residence, the suspect returned to the area with the vehicle and struck multiple parked vehicles and once again fled the area,” she said.

Soon after, police started getting 911 calls about other hit-and-runs, including several on Ladner Trunk Road in Delta.

“This was a very fast moving and fluid situation with information coming in from multiple sources where our police officers were responding to multiple scenes,” Munn said.

One of the vehicles that was hit had three people inside. The impact of the crash was so hard, the car flipped over.

Three people were taken to hospital, one initially thought to be in serious condition but who is now listed as stable.

The driver of the other vehicle did not stop.

A short time later, Mounties got a call about a vehicle that had crashed and was on fire in the 8200 block of 128 Street.

Munn said the driver had fled, but was found a short time later and arrested.

Harinder Singh Sihota, 38, is charged with numerous offences including break and enter, three counts of assault and dangerous operation of a conveyance.

Sihota remains in custody and has a court appearance Sept. 20.
