Wanted in hit and run

A man who served time in jail in the vehicular death of a Kelowna man, is wanted in connection with a hit and run in the Lower Mainland earlier this year.

Mark Batraki, 42, is a Langley man whose last known address was in the Kelowna area, however, police do not know where he is at the present time.

Warrants have been issued for Batraki following a motor vehicle incident April 6 in South Langley.

He's been charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm and theft of a motor vehicle.

Batraki is described as:

  • Middle Eastern
  • 5'10", 190 pounds
  • Brown hair and hazel eyes.

Four years ago, Batraki pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to three months in jail, after his rented vehicle crashed into the back of a motorcycle, killing Jules Kreeft, and seriously injuring his wife Vivian. Batraki was also handed a five-year driving prohibition.

At the time of that court hearing, it was noted Batraki had 25 driving convictions dating back to 1994, including three for dangerous driving. His licence had been suspended on four previous occasions.

If you have information that might help police locate Mark Batraki, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.  Should you need to remain anonymous, please call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
