14-6947 Investigation Update

On December 15th 2014 at 0005 hours Port Moody Police responded to a report of a robbery and assault in the area of Aspenwood Park. Shortly after midnight Monday morning two women were walking through the trail system of Aspenwood when a male engaged them in conversation seeking directions. After a brief conversation the women began to walk away. The male then allegedly attacked the women from behind, knocking one to the ground. A struggle ensued and at some point during the assault, the male produced a knife. Both women fought off the attacker who stole one victim’s purse and fled the area. The victim’s identification and keys were in her purse when it was stolen. The two women received minor injuries during the struggle. Detectives from the Port Moody Major Crime Section were investigating the matter and Police Victim Services were working with the victim and her family.
The following morning, at approximately 0810 hours, a male attended the victim’s residence on Birchwood brandishing a firearm. A fight ensued between the suspect and the home owner. The home owner was able to fend off the intruder and the male fled. The home owner received minor injuries in the struggle and was treated at hospital.
Police attended, recovered the firearm and began a search for the suspect. A number of schools in the area were placed in code-yellow lockdowns as a precaution while Police and K9 units were in the area.
As police continued their search, Coquitlam RCMP received a report of an assault and robbery near a parking lot on Eagle Mountain. The suspect had attacked a female in a parking lot and stolen her vehicle. The suspect matched the description from the Port Moody assault. It was also determined that the suspect had sexually assaulted the female prior to stealing her car. The female was transported to hospital for her injuries.
A few minutes later officers located the stolen vehicle as it was travelling along Panorama Drive. A brief pursuit ensued and the vehicle was stopped in the area of Hawthorn Drive. The driver was arrested and held in custody.
As a result of these incidents 31 year old Vahidreza BORDBAR of Coquitlam is facing the following charges:
-          1 count of Break and Enter to a dwelling house with intent to commit an indictable offence therein, contrary to Section 348(1) of the Criminal Code.
-          Possession of a prohibited firearm and ammunition contrary to Section 95(2) of the Criminal Code.
-          2 counts of sexual assault with a weapon contrary to Section 272(2)(a.1) of the Criminal Code.
It is possible that Mr. BORDBAR used the stolen identification from the purse to target the residence on Birchwood Crescent. As the investigation into the initial robbery continued, Police formed reasonable grounds to believe that a sexual assault had also occurred. Mr. BORDBAR is still in custody.
This investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be sought. Police will provide additional information as it becomes available.
