Update: Thomas Brown arrested on a Canada-wide warrant

Thomas Joseph Lloyd Brown, a 25-year-old Vancouver resident wanted by the VPD in relation to a serious assault, has been located in Surrey and arrested by the RCMP.

Brown was the subject of a public appeal for information on his whereabouts on March 22, 2018.

Surrey RCMP stopped Brown and two other males for an unrelated matter last night in the North Surrey area just before 10:00 p.m., where he was identified and arrested on his outstanding VPD warrants.

Brown has been at-large since March 17, after he allegedly stabbed another man at a family gathering near Stautlo Avenue and Crown Street on the Musqueam Territory. The man sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Brown was wanted Canada-wide for aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and assault causing bodily harm in relation to this incident. He remains in custody.
