Swarmed Surrey RCMP: Viral Video Shows Tweens Assaulting Officers

Three young people have been arrested for assault, obstruction, and mischief after they swarmed Surrey RCMP officers who were responding to an unrelated call.

RCMP confirmed to Narcity that the incident happened on Monday, September 14 around 5:30 p.m. at a housing complex in Surrey.

Officers were there to check in on a kid who had been reportedly left unattended when they were surrounded by a group of about 10 to 15 young people and some adults. In the video, they appear to be punching and kicking a cruiser.
