The video has been shared on several social media platforms by different people, and its unclear where the footage originated.

Surrey RCMP confirms they are investigating, but they are not able to confirm the specific location of the fight or when it occurred.

Const. Richard Wright confirmed Monday that the RCMP was made aware of the incident through social media.

Between 10 and 15 men were involved in the fight, but throughout it and even after, no one thought to call the police.

Wright couldnt give an exact time or location of the fight, but said it happened "over the weekend" in the Strawberry Hill mall area.

Police said there were no calls related to the incident. Investigators are looking to identify the people in the video to check on their well-being.

The video shows a messy fight in a Surrey parking lot and was first shared to Reddit on Sunday. Surrey RCMP are now investigating.

Surrey RCMP are investigating after a video was posted to Reddit on Sunday showing a messy parking lot brawl.

The video was categorized under the local news tag and shared to the Vancouver subreddit sometime on Sunday, with the title “Just another day at strawberry hill theatre in Surrey …”

“This is deplorable behaviour, and the individuals who were fighting were putting the public at risk. Vehicles couldn’t get through, people were coming out of the movie theatre. Someone could have gotten seriously hurt.”

The 26-second clip features no audio and is filmed from behind a tree; it depicts a group of people pushing, hitting, kicking and slapping one another in the driveway of a parking lot. The crowd is also seen breaking up into at least two smaller circles that appear to surround individuals.

“We understand there are community concerns regarding the behaviour in the video,” he said. “Our officers are investigating and have spoken to a number of businesses and residents in the Newton area.”

She said she shared the video because volunteers for the society who regularly canvass the area have told her this isn’t the first time fights have broken out in that parking lot.

One fight, seen in the foreground of the video, shows at least three unidentified assailants surrounding a barefoot male in a blue T-shirt who is pushed down to the ground and stomped. Another individual can be seen jumping on top of him before he scrambles away.

A video circulating online that shows a large and violent fight in a Surrey strip mall parking lot is creating concern throughout the community and prompting police to step up patrols.

Various people can be seen trying to intervene or insert themselves into the fray, though it’s unclear how many were involved in total.

Wright added the mall is a “hotspot” for frontline officers who regularly patrol the area, but police will be stepping up patrols even further after this latest incident.

As of Monday morning, the thread sharing the video had collected 226 votes and 43 comments before being locked by moderators.

Surrey RCMP spokesman Const. Richard Wright said there were no calls over the weekend that matched the incident shown in the video, and that investigators were only made aware of the fight when contacted by Postmedia about the Reddit post.

Wright was not able to confirm a date or time when the incident occurred and it remains unclear when the video was filmed.

“Now that we have seen it (the video), we are absolutely concerned regarding the behaviours as seen in this video and an investigation has been opened,” said Wright.

He confirmed the location depicted in the video is the parking lot at Cineplex Cinemas in the Strawberry Hill neighbourhood — an area he described as a “hot spot for front line officers” — and confirmed investigators are speaking with nearby businesses to determine what occurred.

Wright said investigators are hoping witnesses or anyone who is able to identify those involved will come forward and speak with police. Anyone with information about the fight is asked to contact investigators at 604-599-0502.
