Abbotsford Police Chief Const. Bob Rich will oversee a Police Act investigation into the actions of an off-duty member of Delta police, who was arrested following an alleged assault on a newspaper delivery man in Vancouver.
Firoz Khan alleges he was beaten and robbed by three men who shouted racist slurs outside the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver last Wednesday morning.
On Monday, Vancouver police recommended charges of assault and possession of stolen property against a New Westminster police officer and robbery charges against a West Vancouver police officer.
No charges were recommended against the Delta officer, who Chief Const. Jim Chu said might have been trying to breakup the alleged attack.
