A man who was wanted by the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) after he allegedly rammed a police car and sped away on Jan. 23 has been arrested.
The APD indicated that Travis Nigel Bragg, 25, was arrested Monday night and was scheduled to appear in court today (Tuesday).
Police issued a notice on Feb. 18, asking for the public’s help to locate Bragg.
At the time, they said they had been patrolling Hillcrest Avenue on Jan. 23 when they recognized a dark Ford F-150 parked in a backyard.
It was believed that the truck had been involved in a theft earlier the same day. Officers saw the vehicle drive away from the property, but when they attempted to pull the driver over, he revved the engine, rammed an oncoming police car and sped away.
Bragg was wanted on charges of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, dangerous operation of a vehicle, fleeing from a peace officer, and possessing stolen property (licence plates).
At the time of the alleged incident, Bragg was subject to court conditions that included house arrest and a driving ban.
According to the provincial court database, he has numerous prior convictions, which include possession of stolen property, uttering threats, theft, breaching his conditions, mail theft and driving while prohibited.
