On February 7th 2010 at approximately 0250hrs. The Port Moody Police Department responded to an assault in progress at the Highland Way Recreation Centre located in the 300 blk of Highland Way.
Upon arrival, police located and arrested a male later identified as Benjamin-Arreaga Escobar. Police obtained statements from several witnesses who were traumatized by the unprovoked assault.
