The CCTV footage shows several people moving out of the way of the motorbike as it drives down an escalator and through a set of sliding doors. Security guards can be seen running in pursuit.

Helicopter footage shows the driver leaving the mall and driving across an overpass, as two pedestrians jump out the way.

The video ends with a shot of the motorbike that bears stickers supporting the Hells Angels.

The driver's face has been blurred in the CCTV footage.

Police have confirmed that the video was created by an investigator and are looking into how it became public.

Surrey RCMP posted a news release about the Feb. 20 incident, noting that they had been informed of a motorcyclist driving dangerously around 1.50 p.m. PT that day.

They said the suspect was described as a white male in his 40s.
