Police say a Sunday night “crime spree” spanning three cities saw a man allegedly attack four different people — in multiple car jackings, an ATM robbery and a residential stabbing.

His motive, however, remains unclear.

According to Richmond RCMP, the case began when two cars crashed near the connection to highways 99 and 91 around 6:45 p.m.

One of the cars was found empty. Soon after, a resident who answered the door of a nearby home was found stabbed multiple times and had his car stolen.

That car, according to Vancouver police, was then involved in a head-on collision near Victoria Drive and Kingsway that happened moments after a robbery at an ATM at a Toronto Dominion Bank in the area. A man using the machine was slashed.

A couple driving by with their children in the back seat stopped to render aid at the crash scene and both were slashed when the suspect tried to take their car.

When that carjacking failed, the suspect, described as a 30-year-old Delta man, jumped into another person’s car at a nearby gas station and took off.

Mounties eventually found him hours later after he crashed into a curb near King George Boulevard and University Boulevard in Surrey where allegedly ran into a wooded area to hide.

Police believe the same person is behind all those incidents, however, charges have yet to be approved.
