A 22-year-old man has pleaded guilty in relation to a domestic assault in Abbotsford in April that ended with a police pursuit and a collision.
Daniels Staples-Taylor pleaded guilty earlier this month to assault causing bodily harm, fleeing from a police officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Three other charges – assault with a weapon, uttering threats and kidnapping – are expected to be stayed at sentencing, which is scheduled to take place Aug. 10 in Abbotsford provincial court.
Staples-Taylor also pleaded guilty to one of two counts of breaching his bail conditions.
The incident took place April 4, when police received reports at 12:20 p.m. that a woman was being assaulted in the 33300 block of Hawthorne Avenue.
Witnesses further reported that a man was dragging the victim into a car, a 2005 Chevy Malibu.
As police arrived on the scene, the car sped off. Police followed in pursuit, deployed a spike belt near Townline Road and Wheel Avenue, and boxed in the suspect vehicle, which then collided with a police truck.
Staples-Taylor was arrested at the scene and taken into custody. Police said he had numerous outstanding warrants.
