Officers from Burnaby RCMP’s Domestic Violence Unit, Investigative Support Team and Serious Crimes led the investigation with assistance from almost every other section in the detachment.

We cannot undo the harm this man has caused, but we can and will always strive for justice and community safety. Said Inspector Matt Toews, Burnaby RCMP’s Officer-In-Charge of Investigative Services. After months of investigation, coordination and painstaking effort, we’ve reached a successful conclusion and I commend everyone involved. I hope this result will bring some comfort to the victim in this case.
