The mother of a 14-year-old Port Coquitlam girl who was allegedly punched in the face by a 13-year-old boy says a Coquitlam RCMP officer repeatedly encouraged her not to pursue charges. And when she didn’t agree, she says he threatened to arrest her daughter, as well. The mother, who can’t be named to protect the identities of the youths involved, recorded the 33-minute meeting with the officer in her home without his knowledge. She is biologically the girl’s aunt but has been her legal guardian for the past six years and considers herself her mother. She also recorded a 45-minute meeting with the officer the following day, of which he was aware.
